City of Lancaster Commitments to Racial Equity
Mayor Sorace was elected to build a stronger and more equitable Lancaster, block by block. The City of Lancaster has made these commitments to racial and social equity. Some of this work started more than 2 years ago and some is NEW. It is all connected to what has been asked of the City by demonstrators this summer.
