Port Huron City Council takes up race resolutions

Racism and social inequities are now deemed as a public health crisis in the City of Port Huron. At Monday night’s meeting of Port Huron City Council, members unanimously approved two resolutions, one denouncing the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis last month, and the other setting the groundwork to combat prejudice in city departments. “We need to work harder to make things on a more equal basis,” said Port Huron Mayor Pauline Repp, speaking to WPHM. Among other things, the resolution calls for racism equity training for all city agencies, including the Port Huron Police Department. City administration would also be required to identify diversity goals and objectives, and to report periodically on their progress to city council. The two resolutions passed city council unanimously Monday.
