CDG begins work on DEI statement

A subcommittee of volunteers is working on writing a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) statement for the Mount Vernon-Lisbon Community Development Group (CDG). Once completed the CDG DEI statement could be considered for adoption by other MV-L community nonprofits and other organizations, businesses, schools or City groups.

If you lead or are a leader of a business, organization, City or school group based in Mount Vernon and/or Lisbon, the committee would like your input. 

CDG represents both Mount Vernon and Lisbon communities and the statement fits well into the organization’s mission: “To develop and promote our business environment, including but not limited to our Main Street District, and enhance the quality of life in the communities we serve.” 

The ad-hoc committee will meet Thursday, March 9, at 8:30 a.m. at Hills Bank in Mount Vernon.  If you are interested in being part of this committee and discussion, please contact committee Chair Brenda Langenberg at
