Civil Rights Observance City Wide, Worcester - Map It
The intent of these calendar entries is to provide information on landmark civil rights legislation, national and international human rights observances as well as cultural observances to bring awareness to the work of the Office of Human Rights and Disabilities and cultural diversity in our city. The hope is that it will serve to (1) Inform residents how the City is addressing human rights issues through the promotion of events and trainings; (2) Call attention to social inequities and celebrate cultural diversity; and (3) Increase resident involvement in civic functions.
