About the Commission on Equity

In January 2021, the city passed an ordinance to establish a commission to help identify and address issues of inequity. The commission is responsible for suggesting policy improvement to the city council and encouraging more inclusive activities.

The Commission consists of seven adults and one youth member from the Lacey Youth Council, who may serve two consecutive terms. Each general member will serve a three-year term while the youth member will serve the commission for a period of one year.
