Meetings begin at 6 p.m. and are currently being held in the community room in the lower level of the Lansing Public Library (2750 Indiana Ave, Lansing IL).

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.
