The CommUNITY Diversity Group will hold its 29th Annual Race Unity Day Rally virtually on Sunday, September 13, 2020 beginning at 3:00 p.m.  This day has been proclaimed as "Race Unity Day" by the Village of La Grange.   The annual event is intended to bring the community together to recognize its diversity and to celebrate the Village’s rich history and contributions made by all of its residents.  Please register for the virtual Race Unity Day Rally here.  

The CommUNITY Diversity Group also invites the community to the 2020 Summer Read Book Discussion on "How to Be an Antiracist" by Ibram X.

For decades, the Village and Police Department have worked in partnership with the Community Diversity Group to discuss opportunities to strengthen community relationships, and enhance awareness that all humanity belongs to one family, to fight prejudice wherever it is found, and to assure that all persons have equal opportunities regardless of their race. 

The Village of La Grange and the La Grange Police Department have a commitment to serving every member of our community with integrity, professionalism and equity – no matter their race, religion, orientation or housing status.  The Village’s website includes information and Frequently Asked Questions regarding its Commitment to Community, Commitment to Equitable Treatment and Commitment to Diversity.

For more information please visit the CommUNITY Diversity Group website at: www.communitydiversity.org or the Village of La Grange website.
