[ARCHIVED] City Council reaffirms commitment to eliminate racism

A Message from Mayor Jason Pu

The City Council recently passed a resolution responding to recent protests and calls for reform throughout the United States by reaffirming the City’s commitment to eliminate racism and discrimination. The resolution reads: 

The City of San Gabriel hereby condemns the excessive and unnecessary use of force by the former police officers of the Minneapolis Police Department that led to the homicide of George Floyd. The City of San Gabriel reaffirms its support of the public’s right to peacefully and lawfully assemble and protest for the expression of political and social viewpoints, particularly on matters of paramount importance such as the personal safety of its diverse residents, and their legitimate and constitutionally guaranteed right to equal treatment under the laws. 

The City of San Gabriel reaffirms its commitment to the fair, even, and equal administration and enforcement of its laws, including in the front line enforcement of the laws by its police officers, and condemns any conduct that might lead to a differentiation in the safety, respect, courtesy, and confidence its residents and businesses are entitled to have in the provision of police services, based on race, color, ethnicity, ancestry, national origin or other protected status. The City of San Gabriel hereby commits to an ongoing process of self-reflection, examination, active listening and engagement with the community to review our current policies and practices, including policies and practices within the San Gabriel Police Department, to ensure the fair, even and equal administration and enforcement of its laws, to eliminate racism and discrimination based on race, color, ethnicity, ancestry, national origin or other protected status in the City of San Gabriel’s policies and practices, to hold the entire organization accountable to these standards, and to adopt reforms necessary to do so.
