Southeast Neighbors Human Rights Committee
Over the summer of 2020, in response to greatly increased attention to human rights issues both nationally and locally in southeast Eugene, a group of neighbors and SEN board members began meeting to explore formation of a Human Rights Committee (HRC).
The vision of the HRC is that it will advise the SEN Board and promote initiatives that support principles of human rights and equity for residents living in southeast Eugene and throughout the community.
Activities being considered include organizing speakers on human rights topics for quarterly SEN community meetings, educational programs for community members, fostering communication and problem solving among community members, and other initiatives that promote human rights and equity.
In March 2021, the SEN HRC submitted public comment regarding allocation of payroll tax funds for the Community Safety Initiative.
The Human Rights Committee welcomes input and participation by all interested southeast Eugene residents. Meetings are held monthly by Zoom. Please contact us for more information.
