New Equity and Engagement Department Webpages Launched

On July 13, 2022, a new section of the City website featuring the Equity and Engagement Department debuted on the City’s website. Staff from the Equity and Engagement Department, City Manager’s Office, and Information Technologies Department worked with a local firm to design and build out the new pages to showcase all the important work and responsibilities of this new Department. Formerly a division of the City Manager’s Office, the duties and accomplishments of the former Office of Equity, Community and Human Rights have been relocated to this new section of the website. This includes information about programs like the Champaign Diversity Advancement Program, Human Rights Ordinance, Support for LGBTQ+ and Immigrant Communities, Community Coalition, Community Gun Violence Reduction Blueprint, and more. Check out the new section of the website for information about these and other department programs.
