Diversity Pledge

one community

Take the Elk Grove Diversity Pledge:

I realize no one in Elk Grove is exactly like me and that’s an amazing thing.
I respect my neighbors for the things we have in common and for our differences.
I resolve that we all need to get along to make our community the best it can be.


The City of Elk Grove’s unique and diverse population adds a vibrant quality to our community. To help celebrate and support our shared diversity we are asking all of our residents to take the Elk Grove Diversity Pledge. Thank you for supporting diversity—the one thing we all have in common.

Elk Grove Proclaims its "No Place for Hate"
