This morning I was notified that I was being recommended for appointment to the City of Huntington Beach's Human Relations Task Force by Council Members Joe Shaw and Mathew Harper. The appointment will be made at the 1/17/12 HB City Council meeting. The Human Relations Task Force promotes and celebrates diversity in our community through education and understanding. It also works closely with the Police Department to strictly enforce and monitor all incidents that could be classified as hate crimes. I'm really looking forward to this new role and the opportunity to bring together and make more visible all the rich cultural diversity that is located in our community. Plus, there might be some art stuff involved.
