The mission of the Red Bank Community Engagement and Equity Advisory Committee is to create and foster programming and practices that make our community more egalitarian, welcoming, inclusive, safe and productive for our residents, our local businesses, visitors and the surrounding communities.

The Borough of Red Bank Community Engagement and Equity Advisory Committee has adopted the following Diversity Statement:

Diversity, when it is accepted and respected, is a tremendous strength and asset for any community. It encompasses an understanding that each individual is unique and valuable to the welfare of the community. It recognizes and celebrates the differences amongst individuals, and capitalizes on the strengths resulting from these differences. Diversity works best when a community explores these differences in a safe, positive, and nurturing environment. The Community Engagement and Equity Advisory Committee of Red Bank, NJ, in an effort to set an example for inclusivity, adopts the broadest definition of diversity with the following statement: The dimensions of diversity shall include, but are not limited to the following: race, ethnicity, persons of faith and non-believers, sexual orientation, sex, gender identity, disability, socioeconomic status, cultural orientation, physical abilities, political beliefs, age, and national origin and status.

About the Committee

On June 22, 1993, the Mayor and Council of the Borough of Red Bank adopted an ordinance that created the Red Bank Community Engagement and Equity Advisory Committee.

The goal of the Committee is to advise the Mayor and Borough Council on ways to promote ethnic and cultural harmony among all Borough residents.

The Committee will propose ways to encourage goodwill, cooperation, and conciliation among the multicultural residents of the Borough. It will also recommend educational and cultural programs to foster unity and develop a sense of community.

The Committee is dedicated to fostering an atmosphere of understanding and acceptance of each individual. Red Bank is a great place to live, work and grow giving us a unique opportunity to recognize, appreciate and celebrate the many cultures that make up our town.
