Human Relations Advisory Commission

Overview

The purpose and mission of the Human Relations Advisory Commission is to provide an egalitarian, welcoming, inclusive, safe, and productive community for the residents, local businesses, and visitors of the Town. It will do so by creating and fostering programming, both formal and informal, that will address conditions of bias, discrimination and prejudice by increasing our mutual understanding and respect of one another.

Mission

HRAC serves as a resource and community partner to uproot, dismantle and eradicate hate, prejudice, racism, and bias to foster an inclusive and supportive environment, raise awareness, and build a community that appreciates our commonalities and celebrates our diversity.
