At the 4th annual "Stand Against Racism" there was music, dancing, and great company. More importantly, there was a good message about tolerance, kindness and inclusiveness. Diversity is a strength that we see in our thriving economy and our vibrant cultural and educational offerings. Together, we can all do our part to make Salt Lake County a welcoming community. When we break down out own biases and preconceived notions, we each learn to be more accepting and open to the worth of every individual. I want to thank my Director of Diversity and Inclusion Emma E. Houston and the Council on Diversity Affairs (pictured with me below) for putting on a great event.
