The City of Lancaster is Committed to Equity
Mayor Sorace was elected to build a stronger and more equitable Lancaster, block by block. The City of Lancaster has made these commitments to racial and social equity. Some of this work started more than 2 years ago and some is NEW. It is all connected to what has been asked of the City by demonstrators this summer.

The Community & Police Working Group
The Community Police Working Group is made up of representatives from the City of Lancaster government, the Lancaster City Bureau of Police, the Lancaster branch of the NAACP, representatives from community benefit organizations, clergy, and city residents.
Since its formation in the summer of 2018, the group has made strides towards improving trust and cooperation between the Lancaster City Bureau of Police and the public it serves.
