Greenville Human Relations Council Brief History

 

The Human Relations Council was first established as the Greenville Good Neighbor Council in April of 1966 and was renamed the Greenville Human Relations Council in February of 1972.   One of the Council’s primary responsibilities is to serve as the catalyst for building partnerships and to raise awareness on the importance and value of establishing an inclusive community that is created by involving the gifts and talents of every citizen in Greenville.  The Council can only accomplish this awesome task by establishing and implementing human relations programs to promote various means of communication or understanding between people or a means of reconciling their differences.  

 

Inclusive Community Initiative

 

On March 8, 2007, the Greenville Human Relations Council recommended to City Council that the City partner with the National League of Cities to join them in their inclusive community campaign. On March 8, 2007, City Council adopted Resolution No. 07-11 pledging the City’s support to work towards becoming an inclusive City.  In June 2007, there was an unveiling ceremony of the Inclusive Community Sign and signs were erected in August of 2007.  The City’s Inclusive Community initiative was originally initiated by Council Member, Mrs. Rose Glover and Mayor Pro-Tem, Mrs. Mildred Council.
