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 23-member task force to look at the areas of race and culture and how they affect our community. The group will meet 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 you get involved?

The Task Force will be hosting Community Conversations throughout Fort Worth.  These conversations will bring together small diverse groups from throughout our city. Each will be hosted by a variety of community organizations. If you are interested in participating, please complete our questionnaire or contact us at

Host organizations will be reaching out to volunteers over the next several months. Please be patient for someone to contact you.  Additional meetings will be added if necessary to make sure everyone gets to participate.
