February 1, 2021. Last November, the Town of Pittsford adopted a “Declaration of Inclusion,” which clearly establishes the intention of the community as it undertakes some very hard work. The document can serve as a model to other towns around the state that are likewise hosting equity and inclusion committees or hiring directors of equity.
“The Town of Pittsford condemns racism and welcomes all persons, regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, gender identity or expression, age, or disability, and will protect these classes to the fullest extent of the law.
“As a town, we formally condemn discrimination in all of its forms and commit to fair and equal treatment of everyone in our community.
“The Town of Pittsford has been and will continue to be a place where individuals can live freely and express their opinions.”
