Indigenous Peoples’ Day is celebrated October 10 to honor the cultures and histories of the Native American people, the original inhabitants of North America. The day is centered around educating the public about indigenous culture and to honor the social and cultural contributions indigenous people have made.
As part of its Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging Policy, the Plainfield Park District commits itself to these values because they make us a thriving community for all people. Creating a mutually respectful, multicultural and equitable environment does not happen on its own; it must be intentional.
Plainfield Park District is an organization that welcomes, respects, and encourages the contributions of all people regardless of race, color, ethnicity, national origin, relation, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, marital and/or family status, language, mental and/or physical ability, military status, economic class, immigration status, foster status, body size, criminal history, or any other characteristics that are often used to divide people.
