Lynnwood seeks Korean for its diversity commission

Lynnwood’s Neighborhoods and Demographic Diversity Commission, a seven-member volunteer advisory body, is currently accepting applications to fill two vacancies. Special effort is being given to recruit a member of the Korean community.

The 2010 U.S. Census reports that 3.6 percent of Lynnwood’s population identifies as Korean.

The Diversity Commission’s mission is “to foster an environment of mutual respect and understanding for all people in Lynnwood by connecting, sponsoring, and supporting community building.” The Commission participates in community events, hosts bi-annual educational forums, conducts outreach to the community, and advises the mayor and city council on ways to encourage mutual understanding among citizens about the city’s increasing demographic diversity.

The Diversity Commission meets on the second Tuesday of each month from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Lynnwood City Hall, with occasional additional events and activities. Applicants must live within Lynnwood City limits and be a registered voter. (end)

For more information, or to submit an application, please contact Diversity Commission Liaison and Community Outreach Specialist Julie Moore at 425-670-5023 or jmoore@ci.lynnwood.wa.us.
