The Village’s reinvigorated Human Relations Commission held its first meeting on March 24. One of the Commission’s first tasks is to hold community engagement discussions on racism, social equity, and community building. With acts of racism against Asian Americans on the rise, the HRC is planning to conduct its first community discussion with a focus on the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. These discussions are intended to listen to the concerns of our AAPI community and identify ways that the Wilmette community can support them in a meaningful and impactful way. If you would like to participate in the next HRC meeting or community engagement sessions, please follow the Village’s website, E-News, and social media channels for more information. The Village of Wilmette is committed to inclusivity and rejects any acts of violence and discrimination based on racial, ethnic, religious, and cultural backgrounds.
