The CommUNITY Diversity Group will hold its 32nd Annual Race Unity Day Rally on Sunday, September 10, 2023 beginning at 3:00 p.m. This day has been proclaimed as "Race Unity Day" by the Village of La Grange. The annual event is intended to bring the community together to recognize its diversity and to celebrate the Village’s rich history and contributions made by all of its residents.

The CommUNITY Diversity Group also invites the community to the 2023 Summer Read "See No Stranger" by Valarie Kaur. Virtual and in-person book discussions are scheduled throughout September and October. The meeting schedule and additional information can be found here.

Additional Diversity Days events include the screening and discussion of the movie "Till" at the La Grange Public Library on Friday, September 8, from 5:30 - 8:30 p.m. Further information about the 2023 Diversity Days in La Grange can be found here.

For decades, the Village and Police Department have worked in partnership with the Community Diversity Group to discuss opportunities to strengthen community relationships, and enhance awareness that all humanity belongs to one family, to fight prejudice wherever it is found, and to assure that all persons have equal opportunities regardless of their race. 

The Village of La Grange and the La Grange Police Department have a commitment to serving every member of our community with integrity, professionalism and equity - no matter their race, religion, orientation or housing status. The Village's website includes information and Frequently Asked Questions regarding Commitment to Community, Commitment to Equitable Treatment and Commitment to Diversity.
