About Us

diversitySCS.org is a website developed and maintained by a group of citizens from St. Clair Shores who support the concepts of diversity and inclusion in their city.   Our goal is to help build an inclusive community where no one is left behind.

The group also supports the work of the St. Clair Shores Youth Council.

The citizen group has worked side by side with the Michigan Roundtable for Diversity and Inclusion since 2009., creating a St. Clair Shores Initiative.  

The Michigan Roundtable for Diversity and Inclusion is a not-for-profit civil rights organization located in Detroit working to overcome discrimination and racism by crossing racial, religious, ethnic and cultural boundaries.
