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 


Apply for a Mid-Term Appointment to a Beaverton Board or Commission 

Are you looking to serve your community in a new way in 2022? Look no further! Spots on a handful of Beaverton boards and commissions are open and ready to be applied for mid-term appointments slated to begin in May. 

Whether it’s city budgeting (Budget Committee); advocating for bicycle transportation (Bicycle Advisory Committee); advising on issues related to human rights (Human Rights Advisory Commission); supporting our libraries (Library Advisory Board); funding local social services organizations (Social Services Funding Committee); or addressing traffic-related concerns and projects within the city (Traffic Commission), getting involved in local government is a great way to have a say in matters that matter to you. Openings exist on all the above-referenced boards and commissions.
