City Highlight_Mayors Equity Initiative

As communities across the nation continue to protest unfair treatment of citizens, Daytona Beach Mayor Derrick Henry has started an equity initiative so the community can come together to help take steps to achieve the dream of a bias-free society.

“It is incumbent upon every citizen, neighborhood, institution and business to respond to what I view as an opportunity to have thought-provoking conversations, and establish sensible equity approaches for our community,” said Mayor Henry. “There is a role for every segment of our society, including business, education, law enforcement, healthcare and government to make a difference for others in our community.”

The Mayor hosted a virtual listening session that was open to the public Monday, June 29.

Following the listening session, focus groups will work together during the next six months. Focus groups are: criminal justice, education, health/social services, media/business and neighborhood/clergy. 

The initiative recently added a new focus group, Under 40 Community Roundtable. The under 40 focus group has an upcoming virtual meeting taking place at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 29. For more information about this new group, email jessicamiles4db@gmail.com or call Betty Goodman at (386) 671-8203. Virtual meeting details are below:
