Monmouth County Human Relations Commission

Promoting understanding and tolerance among the many cultural groups in Monmouth County

Formed by resolution of the Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders in 1990, after substantial input from community leaders from all walks of life, the MCHRC combats the causes of bias and discrimination that result in acts of violence,  vandalism, and violations of civil rights. MCHRC members are a cross-section of Monmouth County's leadership, representing government, law enforcement, clergy, minority groups, educators, and business.

The commissioners' activities include:

advocating for  victims,
creating resources for schools,
public speaking and outreach,
improving police/community relations, and
educating employees and employers.

The MCHRC also empowers towns to address local human relations issues by assisting in the creation of local HRC's.

Recognizing the cultural diversity in our country, we also see incidents of bias and discrimination, even violence, against persons who "look  different" or "act differently". 

The MCHRC maintains a hotline for people to call if they experience bias or discrimination.

A bias incident may involve:

physical or verbal attack or harassment,
housing discrimination,
denial of credit,
employment discrimination,
denial of access to public accommodations because of one's race, color, creed, ancestry, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, national origin, or other factors.

We urge you to join us in our effort.
