Human Rights Advisory Commission

After a significant year engaging in critical conversations about policing in our community, the Human Rights Advisory Commission (HRAC) is continuing to prioritize the promotion of Community Safety and Engagement in two core ways:  

  • Providing regular research and advocacy to City Council related to police reform. This work stems from recommendations made by HRAC as the result of their BPD-HRAC Inquiry Sessions  
  • Collaborating with Beaverton Police on a public art project that engages residents in making art, collecting data, elevating community voices, and building authentic relationships 


Councilor Nadia Hasan, Human Rights Advisory Commission City Council Liaison  

“The Human Rights Advisory Commission continues to think innovatively about how we can meet the needs of our community by centering multiple voices and perspectives. They are compassionate individuals with a desire to better our city through collaboration and communication.”
