The National League of Cities (NLC) honored the city of Seattle for its program in enhancing and promoting cultural diversity during the annual Congressional City Conference in Washington, D.C. The city received the NBC-LEO City Cultural Diversity Award for its Public Outreach and Engagement Liaison program at a recent ceremony.

As part of Seattle Department of Neighborhoods (DON), the Public Outreach and Engagement Liaison program (POEL) increases access to information, resources, and civic processes with historically underrepresented communities. Seattle City Councilmember Nick Licata attended the ceremony and accepted the award on behalf of the city. (end)
