Shakopee Diversity Alliance Meeting Tonight, Seeking Committee Members
The next meeting is at 6:30 p.m. July 24.
Since more than 100 people attended the Shakopee Diversity Summit in March at Shakopee City Hall, a task force called the Shakopee Diversity Alliance has created a strategic plan and goals for 2012-2013. They've also formed three committees and are looking for more members to help with each each goal.
Host an international event in Shakopee that will celebrate the community's diversity and educate everyone in attendance about diversity.
Build a resource network that will inform new and current members about the resources available to assist them and their families.
Enhance education and cultural awareness opportunities in Shakopee
Shakopee community members are welcome to volunteer to be part of any of the three committees.
