Advisory Council Meetings


Six PHRC Advisory Councils meet regularly, with the goal of extending the commission’s ability to reach local communities.  Various councils hold civil rights awards programs and forums on legislative, educational and employment issues in civil rights, both to educate the public and form strategies to address problems at the local level.
