Utah Governor Herbert Signs Compact on Racial Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah. — On Tuesday, Dec. 16, Governor Gary Herbert announced on the steps of the Utah Capitol Building that he is a signatory on the “Utah Compact on Racial Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.” Several community leaders have backed the declaration so far, including former Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski, clergy from multiple faiths, Jon Huntsman Jr. and others.

“It is my belief as governor that we each bear some responsibility to create a society in which race and ethnicity do not influence value, opportunity, or life outcomes,” Governor Herbert said in a statement on Facebook. “We all can and should do better. And I know we will.”
The five principals within the declaration include:
1. Acknowledgement and action
2. Investment
3. Public policies and listening
4. Engagement
5. Movement, not a moment

All Utahns who wish to commit individually to these anti-racist principals and actions outlined in the compact are encouraged to add their signature to the declaration today. You can read the document in its entirety and sign your name here.
