CCHRC Support Network
We consider discrimination or harassment based upon gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, and disability, as well as race and national origin, to be intolerable. We strongly believe that each and every form of discrimination creates a barrier to real equality and freedom for us all.
The Council wants to ensure that every resident or visitor to the Concord-Carlisle community knows their rights, and can find support if ever harassed, attacked, or is the victim of any kind of domestic violence.
When human rights violations occur in Concord or Carlisle, our goal is to send civil rights violators a clear and immediate message that their actions are unacceptable, and to let the victims know that they are valued, supported, and welcomed in our community.
If you are a victim of harassment or discrimination, the CCHRC Support Network would like to help.
If you are in danger or need immediate assistance, call 911.
If you call or email us, we will:
Put you in touch with those who can help
Work closely with the police or school officials to see that a thorough and effective investigation is carried out
Pressure organizations or businesses to change any discriminatory policies or practices, and support their efforts to discipline and educate any employees who violate the civil rights of others
Assist in the removal of offensive graffiti and, if necessary, in the repair of damaged property
Solicit support from the community by writing letters to the newspapers and appropriate authorities
In order to protect your privacy, we will take action only with your specific permission.
