Beaty tapped for Estacada equity committee
The Estacada City Council appointed Tami Beaty to join the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee.
Beaty, a goat farm manager and beekeeper, said in her application she has "a big heart for helping people" and hopes to "make our community better."
The mother of two has co-led a free annual dental clinic for the past three years, organized a mobile mammography clinic in Sandy and participated in other civic and community efforts.
The seven-member DEIC is a volunteer committee that advises the Estacada City Council. It was launched in October 2020 to provide input to the council and staff to help them consider issues of equity and diversity as the city makes decisions.
The committee helps the city with outreach and engagement with historically underrepresented groups and also reviews current city policies and procedures through an inequity lens while evaluating the city's progress on its equity-related goals.
Beaty will serve on the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee for a term ending March 31, 2023.
