Human Relations Commission
The Human Relations Commission was established by City Council to promote the acceptance and respect for diversity through educational programs and activities, and to discourage all forms of discrimination based on race, religion, age, gender, disability, etc. The Commission often coordinates these efforts with other City boards and commissions, community groups and organizations. The Commission also oversees the Citizen Liaison Program, and presents the annual Human Relations Award to recognize those citizens who have advanced the cause of human rights through their volunteer efforts.
