mission

To foster mutual self-respect and understanding and promote amicable relations among all racial, religious, and ethnic groups. The Commission educates and counsels in the area of civil rights enforcement.

More work is always needed to support fairness, equity, procedural justice, transparency and accountability – the values that build trust.  Therefore, the Livonia Human Relations Commission is being reconstituted in 2020 with the following charge:

• To ensure everyone is treated fairly—regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability, or any other identity.

• To shed a brighter light on racial and social injustice that permeates all communities, including Livonia.

• To activate the next generation to shape the strategies that will lead to ending racism and social injustice.

The Human Relations Commission is:

•  Working in partnership with City Departments to promote operations, programming and outreach that  supports  diversity, equity and inclusion across Livonia

•  Endorsing events and programs that advance the Human Relations Commission’s mission. 

•  Advising the Mayor’s office on policy recommendations to improve trust between City government and residents.
