Celebrating 70 Years as the Voice in the Community

Dear CHRC Supporter,
The Cincinnati Human Relations Commission (CHRC) is pleased to announce our Annual Dinner & Awards Ceremony on Thursday, June 5, 2014 at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza.  Our theme is “Celebrating Connecting Cultures & Communities.”  There will be a light reception and silent auction from 6:00-7:00PM followed by Dinner. This Year’s keynote speaker will be Dr. Tonya Matthews, President and CEO of the Michigan Science Center.  The Bishop Herbert Thompson, Merlin D. Pope, Jr. Diversity Leadership, Youth Services and Champions for Connecting Cultures & Communities awards will be presented as well.
Why CHRC?
CHRC was established in November of 1943 and was called The Mayor’s Friendly Relations Committee. The goal was to appoint a committee that represented various racial, industrial and religious groups to make sure all groups felt a part of their communities and supported one another in the city of Cincinnati. As time passed the name was changed to CHRC and the mission grew to target a much larger issue, discrimination. Thus, our mission is “to help our community to overcome prejudice and discrimination, build mutual respect and understanding, and to become more harmonious and cohesive.”
For 70 years, CHRC has provided middle ground for people who feel they have no voice and are unable to stand up for themselves. We investigate complaints alleging acts of discrimination in areas of housing, employment, and public accommodations or services; and evaluate cases to determine if the law has been violated.  We then refer those cases to the Ohio Civil Rights Commission, Housing Opportunities Made Equal, or other appropriate organizations.  CHRC also investigate alleged acts of bias, hate crimes, and ethnic intimidation, and collaborate with other organizations to diffuse tensions in the community, including conducting mediation and intervention services.
We also provide Street Outreach Workers for CIRV with hopes of engaging group/gang members & assist them with “turning their lives around.”  We organize and host forums and events which encourage open dialogue around issues of prejudice and discrimination to eliminate social distance.  We give underrepresented groups a voice through our Youth Services Programming, Fatherhood Initiative & Hamilton County Developmental Disabilities Services Mentoring partnership. We also provide training and workshops in the aforementioned areas.
We invite you to join us in 2014 by becoming a Sponsor.  Our programs and initiatives are supported in part by the City of Cincinnati, but we depend heavily on contributions like yours. All funds go directly to all our youth and community outreach programming that we provide for the Greater Cincinnati community.
You or your company can make a statement by saying that you are supporting the Cincinnati Human Relations Commission as we work to strengthen the diverse human community through the promotion and practice of non-violence and understanding. Enclosed is a list of opportunities for your company. For more information, please contact our office at (513) 352-3237.
Save your Spot
Sincerely,                       

Dr. Ericka King-Betts, Executive Director                Ms. Laura Powell, Annual Dinner Board Chair
