Update, June 11, 2013: Final Listening Session Report Released. Click here to read it.
In late 2012 and early 2013 the OC Human Relations Commission held a series of ”Listening Sessions” across the county, inviting African-American community members to share their stories, challenges, and celebrations of living in Orange County. The “Listening Sessions” were prompted by the experiences of an African-American family who were targeted by hate in Yorba Linda.
In order to share the experiences and findings that came out of the Listening Sessions a report has been produced that includes analysis and recommendations for moving forward and continuing to the pursue the mission of the Commission – to eliminate prejudice, intolerance and discrimination.
On March 14th at 7pm, OC Human Relations held public forum to offer an opportunity for residents to give feedback on the draft report. A draft of the report was posted for the public to review. To read an OC Register report of the Public Forum, click here.
