The Granville County Human Relations Commission (HRC) was established to encourage understanding and good will between all citizens regardless of race, sex, religion, creed, nationality, or economic status, and thus promote the general welfare of the community. The HRC was organized to promote, develop, and implement proactive human relations programs in partnership with schools, corporations, cities, foundations, and individuals.
The HRC reports and recommends to the Board of Commissioners, Human Relations Programs designed to promote the welfare of the community. The HRC identifies Human Relation concerns within the community which could jeopardize the welfare of the community. The Commission also acts as an impartial public forum to the end that there will be better communication between all segments of the community which promotes peace, understanding, respect, good will and harmony among all citizens. Upon the prior approval of the Board of Commissioners, the HRC may sponsor meetings or forums intended to lead all citizens to a clearer understanding of true meaning of responsible citizenship in the community; of the obligations, inherent in being a good citizen and; of the need for mutual understanding and respect by all citizens for each other. The HRC shall have the authority to create and devise Human Relations Programs for recommendation to the Board of Commissioners Governing Body.
