Multicultural Commission to meet with Park City residents
PARK CITY — Lt. Governor Spencer J. Cox and the Utah Multicultural Commission are pleased to announce they are holding a community meeting on Tuesday, July 15, at the Christian Center of Park City, 1283 Deer Valley Drive, from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. Residents of Summit and Wasatch Counties are encouraged to attend.
The Multicultural Commission (MCC) is comprised of leaders within the ethnic community and heads of state agencies. It is chaired by the Lt. Governor and all members are appointed by the Governor. MCC promotes collaboration, communication, and good relationships within Utah’s diverse population and state government.
“We invite Wasatch and Summit County community stakeholders to join us to meet Lt. Governor Cox and MCC members and to provide feedback with a special focus on health, education, economic development and corrections,” said Claudia Nakano, Director of Utah Multicultural Affairs. “With rapidly changing demographics, these four areas of focus are having great impact in our ethnic communities. We dedicate this open meeting to gain knowledge about community needs and to share resources that might alter known disparities in Utah’s growing ethnic population.”
The Commission’s mission is to identify and discuss issues and concerns of the ethnic constituents of Utah within the areas of corrections, economic development, education, health and creative partnerships.
