Does Signal Hill need a Human Relations Commission?
The goal of my news is to keep you informed of what is happening in our city and to help foster resident involvement and transparent government, tonight's city council meeting has several agenda items that maybe of interest to you, including the Obama Foundation Mayors Pledge and a Resolution Standing up for Equality and Against Systematic Racism.
Do you support creating a committee to explore diversity? Would you like to see Signal Hill create a Human Relations Commission? What issues do you face personally with regard to discrimination and racism? Do you see policies and practices already in place that are sufficient?
If you would like to send an email to be included in public comment tonight about these agenda items, please send it to me today before 3pm today.
