The Human Rights Committee envisions a community that:
- has as core values freedom from bigotry, hatred, intolerance, disrespect, and destructive conflict among its citizens.
- respects and recognizes both our diversity and our commonalities.
- engages in respectful, civil, public discourse and debate.
The Committee would like to hear from people who have experienced or observed discriminatory or hostile behavior based on race/color, religion, ethnicity/national origin, language, sex/sexual orientation/gender identity, disability, or age in Lexington.
