The City Manager's Community Coalition Against Bias and Hate, formed in 2000, is a partnership of concerned individuals, including representatives from the City of Worcester Office on Human Rights, the City of Worcester Humans Rights Commission, the Worcester Police Department, the Worcester Public Schools, other city officials and representatives from city and state agencies, institutions of higher learning and community and faith-based groups, committed to fostering a community of justice, where acts of prejudice and hate will not be tolerated.
"Each and every member of our nation has the right to live the American dream. No one should feel uncomfortable or threatened anywhere because of his/her religion, sexual orientation, ability status, gender, age, color, ethnicity or nationality. The face of our society is changing every day and with it, so must our perception of one another. We must learn to live with respect for one another's differences."
