Seattle Human Rights Commission announces two-year work plan

The Seattle Human Rights Commission was pleased to receive feedback and commitments today from council members regarding their two-year work plan.

The Commission’s goals are to elevate community voices to our elected leaders, ensure there is greater public awareness for human rights concerns, and create actionable objectives for local officials.

Their mission is to increase visibility of human rights concerns and to dismantle systems within the city to ensure Seattle delivers on its commitment to human rights.

Their task forces will be focused on ensuring Seattle lives up to its Human Rights City vision, and will focus on the homeless; immigrants and refugees; and human trafficking survivors.

The SHRC presentation begins at 1:16:25.
