DOJ Advises Charlottesville on Human Rights Commission
A member of the U.S. Department of Justice is giving Charlottesville leaders insight on how to start a human rights commission.
Charles Phillips has helped cities up and down the East Coast develop human rights practices. He pointed out key things Charlottesville will need to analyze if it moves forward and starts a commission.
Charlottesville Assistant City Manager David Ellis said, "Not going to be able to take something out of a box, a cookie cutter, and say 'this is what we want to do.' You really need to look at the needs and the strengths of the city of Charlottesville to build this commission."
You are invited to share your thoughts on the tentative human rights commission at an open forum Thursday night at 6:00 at First Baptist Church on West Main Street.
