Mayor’s Commission on Human Rights asking for feedback about inclusion in Springfield

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Springfield’s Mayor’s Commission on Human Rights and Community Relations is asking the community to complete a short survey about inclusion in Springfield. The survey is available at https://tinyurl.com/SGFinclusion through March 20. Paper surveys can be picked up at Springfield-Greene County Library district branches.

“We need responses from as many people as possible so we can understand what Springfield needs to be a welcoming and inclusive community,” said commission chair Heather Hardinger. “Once we collect and analyze this data, we can begin to craft recommendations.”

Mayor Ken McClure addressed inclusion in his 2019 State of the City Address, commenting that it goes hand-in-hand with employers’ ability to attract and retain quality employees.

“In order to recruit and retain the best and the brightest, we must also commit to ensuring Springfield is inclusive and welcoming. This can only be achieved in an environment that fosters mutual respect of all people. It is the right thing to do,” he said.

About the Mayor’s Commission on Human Rights and Community Relations

Appointed by the mayor for three-year terms, the seven-member commission’s purpose is to foster mutual understanding and respect among all racial, religious and ethnic groups of the City and provide community recourse for discriminatory acts. The commission meets at 5:30 p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month in the first-floor conference room of the Busch Municipal Building, 840 N. Boonville.
