Human Relations Commission

The Prince George’s County Human Relations Commission recognizes and celebrates the gifts and strengths of our County. Those gifts and strengths - including creativity, kindness, entrepreneurship, and resilience - come from its residents, who are diverse peoples living in community. We are grateful to live in a County in which hate has no home, and welcome all in the rich tapestry that is Prince George's County.

The HRC stands with the County Executive in denouncing acts of racial violence, and in affirming Prince George’s County’s commitment to equity, equality, and justice for all. Please read the County Executive’s statement on the murder of George Floyd here.
