The Human Relations Commission is dedicated to working alongside the City to improve the quality of life for all residents and visitors. To help focus our efforts and measure our progress, we review and work to improve, our MEI score. The Human Rights Campaign annually evaluates and scores communities, creating a Municipal Equality Index. They look at how inclusive municipal laws, policies, and services are of LGBTQ people who live and work there.
St. Charles City has participated in this evaluation since 2017. You can find out more about the 2020 Municipal Equality Index here and find our detailed 2020 scores here.
These following charts track the City's progress thus far, and with the ordinance changes passed in December of 2020, we expect a higher score next year.
