COT Chair, Shirley Ginwright, has been appointed to serve on the Commonwealth’s Commission for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
Established by Executive Order Number 69, the Commission will identify policy changes that can be made at the state level to combat intolerance, expand opportunity for all, and make Virginia more open and inclusive to people from every walk of life. Created in the wake of the violent white supremacist events on August 11th and 12th in Charlottesville, the Commission will also examine how people become radicalized and what steps can be taken to prevent political violence in the future.
