The Allentown Human Relations Commission will honor the winners of the 2017 Human Relations Commission Awards during a ceremony in City Council Chambers on Tuesday, December 5 at 6pm.
The Commission has dedicated 2017 to reconnecting with the community as a newly reconstructed commission and new leadership. “We as commissioners felt it was most important to reinstate the awards as it is an acknowledgment of the members of the community who support the HRC ordinance and live by example,” said HRC Chair Jessica Ortiz. “We would like to invite all members of the community to join us in celebrating these outstanding individuals.”
Nine awards will be handed out ranging from youth to senior citizens, including awards for lifetime achievement and overall excellence.
