Mayor Schor Establishes Diversity Advisory Council
Lansing Mayor Andy Schor has issued his second Executive Order to establish and create the Mayor's Diversity Advisory Council that will provide expertise, resources and support in citywide diversity acceptance, respect and celebration.
The Lansing City Council has had an operational ad hoc committee on diversity meeting, and earlier this year called for the creation of a diversity council.
During the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday celebration, then again at the State of the City, Mayor Schor indicated he would create this council.
Mayor Schor will appoint the members to the Diversity Advisory Council but will provide the names to the Lansing City Council for feedback and comments.
This council will support city government in fulfilling this responsibility of advancing the values of inclusion, respect, enfranchisement and mutual respect of all of Lansing's citizens.
