The factors prohibited from consideration as a basis for discriminatory action or inaction include race, color, sex, national origin, disability, age, low-income status, or limited English proficiency.

2023 Calendar Observances

The Institute for Livable & Equitable Communities at the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission encourages all community partners and local entities serving the public to be intentional about engaging with regional residents. The Miami Valley boasts a regional population that includes diverse demographic and ethnic groups. Serving this diversity in an inclusive and equitable way requires an understanding of what observances occur during the calendar year that cater to specific identities and experiences. In support of our nondiscrimination policy and as an extension of our Title VI Program, the agency provides this listing of 2023 calendar observances to help better serve our unique region. Please note that this listing is NOT meant as a mandated requirement to follow, but as an additional consideration for how to best engage the public and support your employees. If you feel any observances are missing, then please feel free to contact Title VI Coordinator Fabrice Juin (fjuin@mvrpc.org).
