LA County Commission on Human Relations Releases Proposed Strategic Plan for Public Comment
LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles County Commission on Human Relations released their proposed strategic plan and is inviting members of the public to comment on it.
“Our effectiveness in our assigned responsibility to promote positive human relations and advance equity in LA County depends on productive collaboration with County government and community partners. Their participation in our strategic planning process is a core element of that collaboration,” said Commissioner Preeti Kulkarni, chair of the Strategic Planning Committee.
The feedback received will provide the Commission with ideas on how to better serve the people and communities of LA County.
Commission President Ilan Davidson affirmed, “We are eager for our work to be informed by the richly diverse voices that make LA County special, to involve more of our youth, the future leaders of our County, and to explore new paths of communication with those we serve.”
“Throughout our nearly 65 years of existence, our agency has sought to transform prejudice into acceptance, inequity into justice, and hostility into peace. We know that a relatively small agency such as ours relies upon the collaboration of so many others, and that collaboration is especially key in receiving feedback on our proposed strategic plan,” said Commission Executive Director Robin Toma.
