Chandler Diversity Office

The City's Diversity Office works closely with the community and the Chandler Human Relations Commission (HRC) to develop diversity programs and events. 

Diversity Education
Mini-Grant Sponsorships

The Chandler Diversity Office and the Human Relations Commission provide mini-grants of up to $1,000 available to teachers, schools, non-profit organizations and community groups located Chandler or providing services to Chandler residents or students.  Funded proposals will foster diversity education for youth ages 5-18 and will promote the HRC’s mission: “To promote mutual respect and inclusion in Chandler. The Chandler Human Relations Commission works toward the elimination of prejudice and discrimination; and to promote amicable relations among all racial, cultural, religious, age, gender, disabled, socio-economic and national groups within the community.” 

The grant application for FY2020-21 is August 3 as long as funds are available.



The Chandler Diversity Office, along with the City's Communications and Public Affairs Department, has partnered with the Chandler International Film Festival to debut eight independent films this June, with the potential to add more.

The films will be shown during the Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening time slots for an entire month on the City's cable channel (Cox Channel 11, CenturyLink Channel 8502 and on Orbital Cable in Sun Lakes), Chandler Channel and the City's YouTube Channel

CINETIME also will be shared with other local cities' cable cities.
