The Human Relations Commission (HRC) was created to encourage understanding and respect among residents of Lincolnwood with various racial, ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds. The Commission sponsors human relations activities throughout the year. These activities provide an opportunity for all residents to celebrate the community’s ethnic and cultural diversity.
