[ARCHIVED] City Council Affirms Commitment to Racial Equity

RV City Council

The City of Roseville is dedicated to creating an inclusive community where the predictability of success is not based on race or ethnicity. The City Council adopted a racial equity narrative during Monday's meeting.

In 2018, Roseville staff members representing every city department participated in a year-long racial equity training that was facilitated by the League of Minnesota Cities and the Government Alliance on Race and Equity (GARE).

As part of the work of the city’s GARE team, a Racial Equity Narrative and a Racial Equity Action Plan were developed. The purpose of the narrative was to provide a clear vision for what racial equity looks like for the City of Roseville. The goal of the Racial Equity Action Plan is institutional and structural change developed under the guiding principle that “all people of Roseville are welcomed, included and respected.”

The City Council firmly demonstrated its commitment to be an inclusive community by formally adopting the Racial Equity Narrative at its August 10 City Council meeting. The City Council also approved hiring a Diversity and Inclusion consultant to help build staff capacity, to provide expertise in the areas of diversity and inclusion, to demonstrate that equity is a priority and an investment for the city, and to move the work of equity, diversity and inclusion forward at a faster and more efficient rate. 

City Manager Patrick Trudgeon presented the 2021 preliminary budget at the August 10 City Council meeting. In the preliminary budget, he recommends hiring an Equity and Inclusion Manager in 2021 to help the city advance its equity and inclusion goals.

Residents are encouraged to visit to review the city’s ongoing efforts to promote racial equity and inclusion.
