LANSING, Mich. — Lansing Mayor Andy Schor announced at a news conference Thursday the city is creating a plan to address racism and violence.

The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Plan will involve city staff members from the Lansing Police Department, the mayor’s cabinet, special committees and others.

As a part of the effort, attorney Teresa Bingham created the Mayor’s Racial Justice and Equity Alliance.

The three phases of the plan are:

· Research and community input

· Revise use of force polices and develop a racial justice and equity plan

· Long term plan

The public can participate in three virtual meetings. Those are scheduled for 5:30 to 7 p.m. today, Aug. 6 and Aug. 20.

To learn how to participate in the meetings, read the full plan or for more information, go to www.lansingmi.gov/MRJEA.
