This group strives to foster mutual respect and understanding among racial, religious, ethnic, and other groups on Grand Island. It is empowered to inquire and work toward the resolution of any incident or tension or conflict among or between groups and individuals as specified by the Human Rights Law of New York State. Through its participation and support of the creation of studies, programs, and campaigns that inform and educate the public as to its rights and obligations, and the effects of the violation of human rights on the entire community, the commission continues to seek to ensure that every citizen has an equal opportunity to participate fully in the economic, cultural, and intellectual life of Grand Island.  Five members are appointed and serve five-year terms expiring on December 31 in the year listed.
