Formerly known as the Antelope Valley Hate Crimes Task Force, The AV Human Relations Commission is a grass roots community-based volunteer organization that promotes diversity and good relations between neighbors in the Antelope Valley.
The commission meets on the third Monday of every month at 6:30 p.m.
The organization’s mission is to install a system to facilitate the reporting, investigation, and prosecution of hate crimes; lend victim assistance and identify initiatives to significantly reduce the incidence of hate crimes in the Antelope Valley.
The AV Human Relations Commission runs a Hate Crimes Hotline at 877-7AT-PEACE.
* The AV Human Relations Commission is not affiliated with the Human Relations Tapestry Commission. The latter was formed at the request of Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris with the goal of bringing together various groups, cultures and individuals throughout the City of Lancaster.
