Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion

Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion

At the City of Huntington Beach, we strive to meet the highest standard when it comes to establishing diversity, equality, and inclusion within our community.

The City continues to work towards policies and programs to meet this standard and create a welcoming environment where every resident, business owner and visitor is valued and respected with a sense of belonging. We wish to send the message that we embrace their diverse backgrounds, including race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, religion, age and ability. Through open dialogue, the City aims to form new bonds and achieve our goals together as OneHB.

Current Policies and Programs:

The Mobi-Mats are just one of the City's ongoing efforts to make Huntington Beach more accessible. The City opened its first All-Inclusive Beach Playground at 9th and PCH in 2018 with tremendous support from the community such as the Rotary Club and the Kiwanis Club of HB.  This 4,660 square-feet facility includes ADA approved rubberized surface, slides, climbing elements, and swings to provide accessibility and promote interactive play among children of varying abilities. 

As the host city of many world-famous events and shows, the City strives to make our events more inclusive, accessible, and equitable to all residents, businesses and partners.  In preparation of the 2022 Vans US Open of Surfing, the City collaborated with Vans and OC Human Relations to coordinate various programs to promote sustainability and DEIS (diversity, equity, inclusion and a sense of belong) in Huntington Beach. 

On April 11, 2021, the City hosted Hate Free HB – a virtual day of unity to stand against hate and celebrate diversity in Huntington Beach.
