WE ARE NOW TAKING APPLICATIONS FOR THE CITY OF MOUNDS VIEW HUMAN RIGHTS TASK FORCE
Newly released census data shows that the demographics in Mounds View have changed and indicates that they will continue to do so into the future. This requires the City to review our practices, policies, and procedures to ensure we are serving all of our community in the most effective manner possible. This task force will aim to advise and aid the City by promoting a community vision of equal opportunity and freedom from discrimination. We envision a community where all people are welcomed, valued, and respected, where each person feels at home. Human rights can be defined as those basic rights without which people cannot live in dignity as human beings. Human rights are not bought, earned, or inherited; they belong to all people simply because all people are human. Human rights are inherent to each individual.
For a full list of responsibilities and goals of this task force, follow this application link. The City will be accepting applications until Friday, March 24, 2023.

TOMORROW'S CIVIC LEADERS (TCL) PROGRAM
Mission: To increase knowledge and understanding of the critical importance of “Civic Engagement” needed to ensure a successful democratic republic.
Purpose: The City of Mounds View recognizes the ultimate success of a republic does not reside in the simple act of voting, rather it is in an engaged citizenry that understands the true cost of the liberty and freedoms we are so fortunate to enjoy. In short, democracy is hard work, it is not enough to just vote; one must become informed about the issues, informed about civic duty, and engage in governmental processes. The TCL program is specifically created and designed to provide our future leaders multiple opportunities to explore, understand, and engage in our republic.
