In September, 2020, the Manassas City Council appointed a new citizen Equity and Inclusion Task Force, charged with engaging every segment of the Manassas community in an open and honest discussion of race, racism and diversity and exploring barriers that members of the community may have experienced when accessing governmental services such as criminal justice, educational attainment, employment, healthcare, housing and others. The Task Force used data, history and stories to seek to understand and explain the inequities in our community. The Task Force presented its Final Report to City Council on December 13, 2021.
You can find Task Force agendas and minutes here.
Thank you to all who participated in Listening Sessions in 2021, answered short surveys online and in person, and met with Task Force members at community events like the Fall Jubilee.
Listen to Task Force members talked about why they got involved with this initiative and how the Task Force hoped to work with the community to build a better Manassas.
