The mission of the Human Relations Commission is to improve the quality of life for Greensboro residents by encouraging fair treatment and promoting mutual understanding and respect among all people.

Commissioners serve three-year terms and are appointed by City Council. Learn more about applying to boards and commissions.

The Human Relations Commission is made up of focused subcommittees chaired by commissioners. Review the full list of commission members (PDF) (MS Word). All meetings are open to the public, and subcommittee volunteers are needed.

Commissioners work with staff to host the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Breakfast.
