Human Rights Commission
The Human Rights Commission advises the City Council on how to ensure equal opportunity and participation in housing, employment, public service, public accommodations and education. The Commission consists of nine regular voting members, one of which is an attorney, another that is appointed by the School Board and another that is a youth member. The commission also may have an additional non voting youth member.
Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m.
This commission is currently looking for one youth member and one commission member.
The Human Rights Commission developed the Diversity Lens (below) and the accompanying Diversity Lens Brochure. Valuing individual diversity means reaching beyond stereotypical views of individuals and using the strengths and different perspectives that each person offers. The diversity lens, therefore, is not just a reflection of you or me, but the collective us in our community and all of our values.
During 2014 and into early 2015, the Human Rights Commission focused on the issue of bullying in the senior citizen community. Below is a link to the public service announcement:
The St. Louis Park Human Rights Commission will be seeking nominations for the 2015 Human Rights Award in December 2015. The Human Rights Award recognizes individuals, groups, organizations or businesses that have made an outstanding contribution toward increasing understanding and cooperation between people of different backgrounds in St. Louis Park.
