The function of the Human Relations Commission is to foster mutual respect and understanding and to create an atmosphere conducive to the promotion of amicable relations among all members of the Boulder community.
The Human Relations Commission strives to:
- Celebrate and encourage understanding of the diversity of the city's population;
- Encourage education programs with the potential to change ideas and attitudes;
- Conduct research to define key issues in the community in order to suggest appropriate changes to ordinances and policies; and
- Enforce the City of Boulder's Human Rights Ordinance that prohibits discrimination by serving as a quasi-judicial hearing board for human rights ordinance cases.
The Human Relations Commission generally meets the third Monday of the month at 6 p.m. in City Council Chambers, 1777 Broadway. In January and February, the commission will meet on the fourth Monday at West Senior Center, 909 Arapahoe.
