Outreach

The department staff promotes interpersonal relations and interactions amongst its citizens by providing various town hall meetings, roundtable discussions, and other community events that promote and celebrate the theme of cultural diversity. The department staff and the Human Relations Commission hold events such as:

Past events and programs held include Beyond Soul and Salsa African-American/Hispanic Relations Forums, the Jena 6 Community Forum, and the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Noon Hour Observance.  The HRC and HRD partners with community organizations to hold programs such as the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Prayer Breakfast, Juneteenth, India Fest, and Fiesta.

This is just a snapshot of what we do to serve the community. Human Relations is an active and viable part of the community. We invite you to join us in our continuing efforts to make the City of Winston-Salem a place where everyone is treated fairly!
