As the change of seasons turns the nights chilly in the Santa Clarita Valley, the city of Santa Clarita launches its “Season of Diversity” program, which runs through February.

The program is a series of events designed to promote cultural understanding within the community.
“A Season of Diversity provides our residents an opportunity to embrace numerous cultures while instilling the ideal that in Santa Clarita, everyone matters,” said Mayor Bob Kellar.

The city hosts the events annually. Past seasons have included talks from former Holocaust survivors, former neo-Nazis and one of the first black students to attend the previously segregated Little Rock (Ark.) High School in the 1950s.

All events are free and offered at various locations throughout the city. They include:
n Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays and the Trevor Project present a panel entitled It’s OK to Be ... from 7 to 9 p.m. Oct. 18 in Rio Norte Junior High School’s multipurpose room.
n Suni Paz Bilingual Latin American Musical Program begins at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 20 at the Newhall Library.
n Michael D. McCarty presents International Folk Tales at 7 p.m. Oct. 22 at the Valencia Library
n The city of Santa Clarita Visions in Progress Youth Advisory Committee hosts a “Unity” Culture Walk” from 4 to 6 p.m. Nov. 5 at the City Hall Century Room.
n The city hosts “Always There Is a Way — Overcoming Disabilities” at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 18 at the Hart High School auditorium.
n The SCV Interfaith Council hosts a Thanksgiving potluck dinner at 6 p.m. Nov. 20 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Valencia.
