Exciting things are happening for the Northwest Coalition for Human Rights over the summer!
• The volunteer Interim Steering Committee, formed at the June NWCHR meeting, will meet in person on Friday, July 27, 2012 to design a structural proposal for the Coalition. We’ll be in touch after that meeting with news and updates.
• At their monthly meeting on July 2nd, the Bonner County Human Rights Task Force voted unanimously to become members of NWCHR. For a list of members, see https://nwchr.wordpress.com/about/members/
• The previous NWCHR Coordinator, Kristin Carlson, is moving on to new opportunities, and the Office of Human Rights at the University of Idaho is in the process of hiring a new person to fill this position. We expect the new coordinator to begin working in August. Until then, direct email inquiries to Carmen Suarez (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Mo Hendrickson (email@example.com) of the UI Office of Human Rights.
• The new NWCHR listserv is up and running! If you have news or announcements, email them to firstname.lastname@example.org so they are shared with the mailing list. To subscribe to the mailing list, follow the directions on the NWCHR Listserv link.
