About the
Cincinnati Human Relations Commission
The
Cincinnati Human Relations Commission was established in November of 1943 as
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, the agency’s mission
is “to help our community to overcome prejudice and discrimination, build
mutual respect and understanding, and to become more harmonious and
cohesive.”

Join CHRC on Thursday, October 6, 2016, 7-8:00pm EST for the latest Twitter Townhall, #SilenceIsNotAnOption . There has been sustained debate about the “appropriate” way to confront injustice. While opinions may vary, it is certain that silence will not solve our complex institutional and social racial issues.

CHRC is committed to sustained courageous conversations, and welcomes your participation by asking and answering questions using the hashtag #SilenceIsNotAnOption
