The newly formed Unity Council will hold its first public meeting at 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 29, 2020.

The Arlington City Council appointed members to the Unity Council during the July 7, 2020, meeting. The mission of the 25-member Unity Council will be to gather community input, research best practices and recommend strategies that the City of Arlington could implement to promote and encourage greater equality across our community. The Unity Council’s work to create a racial equity plan is part of the City’s commitment to equality, inclusion, and the elimination of institutional racism and other forms of discrimination in its policies and practices.

In the interest of public health, the Council Briefing Room will be closed to the public for the July 29 Unity Council meeting because of social distancing requirements in place to prevent the spread of the respiratory disease, COVID-19.

The meeting will be televised, however, and residents will have the opportunity to call in to speak.
