The Junior Human Relations Commission (JHRC) was founded in the summer of 2020 during the global Coronavirus pandemic. The City of York Human Relations Commission (CYHRC) created the JHRC in an effort to provide the youth in our community with a visible platform to address civil rights and social justice concerns that impact their daily lives.
Under the guidance of The City of York Human Relations Commission staff and appointed Commissioners, a volunteer Junior Commissioner (JC) will help organize and attend events; online and in-person. Events may include hosting discussion forums with peers to highlight issues impacting local students, their families and the York community.
