Gerry Smith, Chairman of the Human Relations Commission (HRC) for the Village of Wilmette, spoke to us about the mission and goals of HRC.  The Commission was formed some years ago, but has become more active under Gerry's leadership.  The HRC is an advisory body to the Village Board and its Boards and Commissions, and its mission is to foster and promote an inclusive community where all racial, ethnic, gender, religious, sexual orientation and cultural backgrounds feel safe and welcomed in Wilmette. The HRC also promotes increased participation in all aspects of community life and endeavors to create a sense of shared community among all residents. The goals of HRC are very similar to Rotary goals for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
