The City of Evanston is committed to becoming the most livable city in America. To achieve this goal, we are working to identify and eliminate all barriers that limit or prevent residents' full access to programs, processes and facilities regardless of race/ethnicity, sex, physical or mental disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, immigrant status, veteran status, language and/or socio-economic status.
A diverse community is one where all people feel welcome and are empowered to participate in the shaping of their community, only then can our community be called the most livable city in America. To achieve better outcomes and sustainable change for our community, we are working to leverage our diversity and actively practice inclusion. When historically underrepresented groups are part of the decision-making process, the outcomes are smarter and far more sustainable.
