The City of Memphis Multicultural Advisory Board will act as a catalyst to encourage respect, understanding, and inclusion of all of Memphis’ diversity. The Board will support long-term relationships with members of our community and various multicultural organizations thereby enriching lives through courageous interpersonal dialogue. The Board strives to build a safe and strong community through group and individual interaction as well as outreach, activities, and education.


Memphis is a city where full and equitable participation exists across all aspects of life, and diversity is valued as an integral part of our community. All citizens live united as “Memphians” regardless of their place of birth, and work toward a common goal of making Memphis a welcoming and livable city.

About Us

The City of Memphis Multicultural Advisory Board is a group of dedicated individuals who are committed to making Memphis a more inclusive and welcoming city for all. We believe that diversity is our strength, and we are working to create a community where everyone feels valued and respected.

The Board is made up of representatives from a variety of multicultural communities in Memphis, including African American, Asian, Hispanic, and LGBTQ+ communities. We also have representatives from faith-based organizations, businesses, and nonprofits.

The Board meets regularly to discuss issues facing multicultural communities in Memphis. We also work to develop programs and initiatives that promote understanding and inclusion.

We are always looking for new ways to improve our city, and we encourage you to get involved. If you are interested in joining the Board or volunteering with our organization, please contact us at [email protected]
