Delta Mayor seeks volunteers for Task Force on Diversity, Inclusion and Anti-Racism

DELTA Mayor George V. Harvie and Delta Council are seeking volunteers to serve on the Mayor’s Task Force on Diversity, Inclusion and Anti-Racism. Recognizing the city’s role in combatting racism, hate, and discrimination, this new task force will work to ensure that the values of inclusion and diversity are reflected in Delta’s policies and in the community.

The task force will work to provide recommendations to Council on actions and initiatives to support diversity and inclusion and combat racism and discrimination at the city and in the community.

Harvie said: “We take racism and discrimination very seriously at the city and this new task force is an important step in our work to ensure the values of diversity and inclusion are reflected in our organization and the community.  I’m eager to get working with my colleagues to listen, learn and collaborate to recommend meaningful actions, while we work to oppose and eradicate racism wherever we find it.”
Delta residents interested in sitting on this task force are asked to submit a short bio highlighting their experience relevant to the Mayor’s Task Force on Diversity, Inclusion, and Anti-Racism, contact information, and why they would like to serve.
