Over the last three months the OC Human Relations Commission has 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 has been posted for the public to review. Click here to read the draft report. To read an OC Register report of the Public Forum, click here.
All members of the public are encouraged to review the draft and post thoughts, feedback and critiques in the comment section below.
