Phoenix was recognized with second-place honors by National League of Cities for implementing its “Phoenix Against Domestic Violence — A Roadmap to Excellence” program in the population category of more than 400,001 residents.

“A Roadmap to Excellence” is a five-year strategic plan to end domestic violence. More than 50 community partners, private and nonprofit organizations collaborated to create a plan that includes a community and media campaign focusing on five strategies: community awareness, coordinated service delivery, systems reform, “Phoenix as a Model” and community partnerships.

The 2014 City Cultural Diversity Awards Program, established in 1995, recognizes municipal programs that encourage citizen involvement and honors cities that develop creative and effective programs designed to improve and promote cultural diversity through a collaborative process with city officials, community leaders and residents.
