The Human Relations Commission (HRC) is an advisory board that will provide policy recommendations regarding ACC work on diversity, equity and inclusion of residents of all characteristics to the Mayor and Commission based on active relationship building, community dialogue, listening, data, and research and review of policies in other communities.
The HRC will also work to educate the community about the local non-discrimination ordinance and how to file complaints.
The HRC will also seek opportunities for community outreach and education that prioritizes diversity, inclusion, representation, and equity. More details are available in the ordinance that established the HRC.
The HRC will include 15 members who represent a diverse array of ACC residents across bands of characteristics, including race, color, creed, gender, age, sexual orientation, national origin, religion, ethnicity, ability, gender identity and expression, socioeconomic status, ancestry, veteran/military status, familial status, marital status, expertise, lived experience, and their intersections.

Initially, eight members will serve four year terms, and seven members will serve two year terms; upon conclusion of those initial terms, all members will serve for four year stints.
The HRC will meet at least ten times per year, with the first meeting in the winter or spring of 2022. The members will determine the days and times of meetings.
