The City Council approved the adoption of the DEIB Committee on August 23, with the expectation that the group facilitate resources and collaborative efforts with community partners to better understand and mitigate racial inequities, boost cultural activities, and foster a sense of belonging throughout the city. The committee intends to hold special events, perform outreach, and/or other engagements.

“Pullman has long prided itself on being a safe, welcoming community, but we recognize there’s room to cultivate more and better experiences for our residents and visitors,” said Mayor Glenn Johnson. “With guidance from the DEIB Committee, we hope to further the city’s cultural awareness and furnish amenities that celebrate the uniqueness of the individual.”
