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.
On May 1, the Co-Chairs for the Race & Culture Task Force presented their interim report to the Fort Worth City Council. The complete report is available for download.
Thank you to the organizations who hosted these conversations.
