House and Senate Democrats statement on diversity, equity and inclusion

We respectfully urge our legislative colleagues to reconsider bills that try to remove efforts on diversity, equity and inclusion. Rather, strive for a more inclusive and welcoming environment for all. It is important that our communities of color feel safe, supported, and valued. Everyone deserves an opportunity to thrive regardless of their race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and gender identity or background. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are essential components of a healthy society, and we must work together to ensure that they are at the forefront of our efforts.

We stand in solidarity with people of color in Utah and across the nation, and we will continue to work toward a future where everyone can thrive. Let us join forces to promote diversity, inclusivity and equity, and create a brighter future for all.
