HRC protects Human Rights & promotes Diversity & Equity for ALL thru Advocacy, Education & Outreach

April 28, 2023

The Cedar Falls Human Rights Commission has been made aware of Mayor Rob Green's memo on the Pride Month proclamation. We as a commission have no comment on Mayor Green's actual statements. We do want the community as a whole to know we were not informed of the call for a change in procedure in how this proclamation was being handled compared to all of the previous ones.

The HRC will continue our mission of advocating, educating, and creating events that represent inclusion, diversity, and equity. We want everyone to be treated fairly and welcomed without prejudice or boundaries. It is important to our commission that our residents and visitors feel they are treated with respect, and that Cedar Falls is a safe community for everyone to enjoy. The HRC in the last two years has restructured and is actively working at serving our community.

Please visit our website at https://www.cedarfalls.com/86/Human-Rights-Commission to learn more about we do. On May 3rd we are having a meet and greet at the Ragged Edge Art Bar. Please come and visit with us! We also have a Pride event that is scheduled for June 1st; more information on that event will be shared soon.

Sincerely,
Cedar Falls Human Rights Commission

In light of recent anti-LGBTQIA+ legislation, the Cedar Falls Human Rights Commission reaffirms its mission of ensuring equal treatment and opportunity for all who live, work, learn, and visit our city. We believe that our schools, neighborhoods, and businesses are stronger when every person is able to fully participate without prejudice or discrimination. We call upon residents of Cedar Falls to stand together and support those marginalized by current legislative efforts, uniting as a community that remains a welcoming place to all; a place where the dignity, safety and equality for every person is represented in the policies and actions in all the spaces in our community.

Sincerely,

Cedar Falls Human Rights Commission
