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. 

How can I get involved?

Continuing the Conversation

Come to a Community Meeting

Over the past few months, more than 600 people have participated in our Community Conversations. We are now hosting a series of community meetings to Continue the Conversation.  Join us so that we can continue to discuss the opportunities and challenges when it comes to race and culture in our community. 


Residents are invited to come out and share their opinions and ideas at these meetings. Task Force members and city staff will be available to record comments and provide them to the entire Task Force.  


Each meeting will last approximately 2 hours.  All rooms are wheelchair accessible. If you need special assistance or accommodations, plese call 817-392-8552 at least 48 hours before the meeting so that arrangements can be made.
