The City of Lacey is the most racially and ethnically diverse city in Thurston County. The City firmly believes that it is a stronger community because of the diversity of backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences of its community members. Through policies, practices, services and programming, the City strives to be a welcoming and inclusive city to all residents, visitors, and businesses.
The City, with the Commission on Equity, is currently working on a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Plan. It is anticipated that this plan will come before the Lacey City Council for consideration in Summer/Fall 2022.
The City is committed to partnering with local civic leaders and organizations to improve communication with underrepresented groups to address areas of concern.
