Lansdowne Human Relations Commission
About the Commission
The Borough of Lansdowne prides itself on being a diverse, neighborly and welcoming community. To help support these important values, the Human Relations Commission was established by Borough Council in March 2006 through Ordinance 1215, to ensure that persons who live and work in Lansdowne are protected from unlawful discrimination.
The Commission is comprised of seven individuals who are appointed by Council. The Commission is non-partisan and non-profit, and there is no charge for the services it provides.
The commissioners are available to speak with interested individuals and groups about Lansdowne’s anti-discrimination law and its enforcement. They meet monthly to plan activities, and meetings are open to the public. Meetings are scheduled for the forth Tuesday evening of each month, 6:30 pm at Borough Hall, but please check with the Borough Manager’s office to confirm.
The Commission is empowered to receive and investigate complaints of discrimination, to mediate resolution when possible, to impose remedies where appropriate, and to assist individuals who wish to file with the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission.
Whether one has filed, or is responding to a complaint, Lansdowne’s Human Relations Commission is here to serve and assist all parties
through the process of complaint resolution.
