Mission Statement

The Human Relations Advisory Committee (HRAC), an advisory group for the Reading Board of Selectmen, promotes and encourages respect for the human and civil rights of all Reading residents. HRAC sponsors outreach efforts and educational programs to foster a greater understanding and appreciation for diversity. The Committee works to prevent prejudice and discrimination on the basis of color, age, gender, religion, disability, culture, national origin, ancestry or sexual orientation. HRAC is a safe place where individuals or groups may plan opportunities for intercultural interactions or share concerns about mistreatment. To ensure that Reading is a welcoming and vibrant community, the HRAC celebrates each individual’s unique qualities.
