Date: July 9th 2019

Salt Lake City Mayoral candidates focused on ways to ensure cultural competency and diverse representation in city government, some highlighting their own experience with discrimination. “I have experienced hate based on my race, ethnicity, gender and national origin,” state Sen. Luz Escamilla said in the forum, hosted at Salt Lake Community College by the Emerald Project, a Utah-based nonprofit focused on combating Islamophobia. “Representation does matter.”
