Earlier this week, the Council created a local Diversity Inclusion Task Force to advise the Council on developing recommendations to further the values of inclusivity and equality in Tiburon and working to identify and address issues of racism, bias, and prejudice within the Town.
In their resolution, the Council stated, “In order to serve our community at large by creating a safe, inclusive, and equitable community, the Town Council of the Town of Tiburon wishes to formally recognize the vital role that diversity plays in our lives and communities and to condemn racism, bigotry, bias, hate speech and prejudice of any form.”
The Task Force will meet monthly, and is specifically charged to:
- Provide advice to the Town Council, Town Manager, and Police Chief regarding issues of diversity and inclusion involving the Police force
