A group of Green Bay community leaders says the city lacks diversity, and they're on a mission to change that. A new committee's goal is to create more culture in Green Bay.
According to the latest figures from the U.S. Census Bureau, blacks, Hispanics, Native Americans, and Asians combined make up 20 percent of Green Bay's population. This new group, the Diversity Committee, wants to increase that number and is determined to make it happen.
"It's not the 60s any more. This shouldn't even be spoken about in 2007," Pastor L.C. Green said.
Green is one of a handful of people on the Diversity Committee. For several months, the group's been brainstorming ways to bring in more minorities and plug them into city positions.
"It's just important because the community is changing, and if the community is changing some of the things in the community need to change," Green said.
