Racial Justice Special Committee

The current national debate over racial and social justice is long overdue, as is the opportunity to improve conversations about racial justice in this country.  To meet the moment, the Town Council decided in June to create a Racial Justice Special Committee.  

The goal of the Special Committee is to create programs and initiatives that help Town residents to (1) understand this moment, (2) explore the Town’s history on racial justice issues, and (3) guide the Town’s future role in addressing these issues.

As residents, we have both an opportunity and a responsibility to lead with the shared values of justice, opportunity, community, and equity.  Sharing our views helps to ensure that this moment serves as an inflection point towards a better future for our community and for all of our neighbors.  

We are seeking volunteers and strongly encourage Town teens to join this Special Committee, which is co-chaired by Councilmember Irene Lane and Vice Mayor Joel Rubin.  To join, please submit a brief note to the Town Office at townoffice@townofchevychase.org.  Your correspondence should include your name, address, telephone number, and the reason you would like to volunteer.

Agenda and Minutes

Agendas are posted prior to each meeting.  Minutes are posted upon approval at a regularly scheduled committee meeting.
