Meeting and Commission Information
The Human Rights Commission (HRC) meets the 3rd Tuesday of each month. All meetings are open to the public. The Commission focuses on its City Council-approved work plan, community matters, and working within City government. The Commission undertakes a two-year work plan, currently focused on four goals:
  • Building Commission capacity
  • Enhancing the Commission relationship and role within City government
  • Responding to human rights concerns and trends
  • Working toward a human rights framework in Eugene

Members create working groups, designate liaisons, craft resolutions and statements, follow response protocols, and facilitate collaboration and partnerships to achieve specific, targeted outcomes. At each full business meeting (held every other month), the Commission and Committees provide a public forum, where issues can be announced or concerns brought forward from the community for broader attention or possible organized response. Finally, the Commission participates in, endorses and financially sponsors community events that are aligned with its mission.
