Minutes from June 9 NWCHR Meeting

The minutes from the June 9th meeting of the Northwest Coalition for Human Rights are now available as a PDF:

Minutes, NWCHR Meeting, Saturday, June 9, 2012

As we explained in our previous post, Saturday’s NWCHR meeting was extremely successful. Those present voted unanimously to approve a mission statement, after much discussion over and editing of one of the statements proposed in the NWCHR Survey from May 2012. The group also approved several purposes for the Coalition, established a volunteer interim steering committee, and gave the committee a mandate to design a structural proposal for the organization. We’ll be working hard to facilitate the first meeting of the committee soon.

We’ve also received good news regarding membership since Saturday’s meeting: On June 13, 2012 the Social Justice Ministry of Sacred Heart Church (Pullman, WA) voted to become a group member of the Northwest Coalition for Human Rights. They say they are pleased with the ongoing work to make NWCHR a reality. We look forward to working with them and our other potential and confirmed members. Other confirmed members include the Spokane Human Rights Commission and the Moscow Human Rights Commission.

Please see the minutes for a detailed summary of the June 9 meeting. Email Kristin (kristinc@uidaho.edu) once you’ve reviewed the minutes if you have comments and suggestions for the new interim steering committee. Thanks!


About nwchr

The Northwest Coalition for Human Rights (NWCHR) exists to facilitate connections and communication among organizations and individuals who are engaged in human rights and social justice work in the Northwest region of the United States, with special focus on the Inland Northwest. The coalition, inspired by Bill Wassmuth's former Northwest Coalition Against Malicious Harassment, will give strength to those working at the local level by allowing them to share resources, information, and ideas, as well as making them part of a larger support system. The University of Idaho Office of Human Rights, Access, and Inclusion (HRAI) in Moscow serves as the administrative home for the NWCHR, and the Coalition strives to build strong membership from throughout Idaho and eastern Washington, as well as from other parts of the Northwest region. All are welcome to join NWCHR and give their input.
