About the Human Relations Commission
The Human Relations Commission is an advisory body, not a decision-making body. They meet to discuss Lansing’s diverse citizenship and ideas for ensuring that all kinds of people feel welcome in community, business, and government. Their recommendations go to the Village Board of Trustees, who decide what actions to take.
I wish this had been a virtual meeting because I still do not feel comfortable attending a meeting indoors with an undetermined number of people. The topics up for discussion are very important, and I am sad to miss this, but I just do not feel safe with Illinois’ numbers going up.
