Special Heritage/Observance Months
The City of River Falls, guided by its Framework for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, is committed to engaging and embracing a rich diversity of staff, community members, and visitors. The City has identified special heritage/observance months to be recognized every year. Recognizing these special months will help acknowledge various ethnic and historically-marginalized groups, celebrate diversity, and recognize each group’s history and contributions to our society.
The City of River Falls will recognize the Heritage/Observance months listed below. Recognitions will include, but not be limited to, a City of River Falls Facebook post with a link to additional information about the month’s significance. Any River Falls Public Library programs related to the month’s observance will also be promoted.
