About Us

One Fort Worth is the City of Fort Worth Race & Culture Task Force

In August 2017, the Fort Worth City Council appointed a task force to look at the areas of race and culture and how they affect our community.  The group will be meeting with community members over the next year and will make recommendations to the City Council on areas where they think change is needed.  The Task Force will also look at statistics and trends to determine how race and culture impact the delivery of city services. 

Task Force Recommendations

Over the past year, the City of Fort Worth's Race & Culture Task Force has met with thousands of residents at town hall meetings, community conversations and neighborhood meetings. Based on the input from these meetings, a set of  recommendations has been drafted. Now it is your opportunity to look over the recommendations and tell the task force members what you think.  Join us at one of our community meetings to provide your input and suggestions:
