Human Relations Commission

Human Relations Commission Established
The Village of Skokie Human Relations Commission was created in 1979 to promote unity and to encourage residents to work in integrated ways to strengthen the community. The commission’s purpose is to encourage understanding and respect between residents of various racial, religious and ethnic backgrounds and safeguard the rights of all citizens. At the commission’s request and expense, a commission member recently participated in SEED facilitator training (Seeking Educational Equity & Diversity) and now provides SEED training to community members through a Skokie Cares initiative that organizes SEED training cohorts each year.
