Human Rights & Inclusion Committee


The Danvers Human Rights and Inclusion Committee (HRIC) is a cohesive task force against anti-Semitism, homophobia, intolerance, racism, sexism and bigotry. We partner with police, school administration and several community partners on events to create a positive atmosphere for a multi-cultural community. We stand against hatred and support those who experience marginalization due to their age, gender, race, ethnicity, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or socioeconomic status.

For more about the HRIC, view the HRIC 2022 Information Packet.


Every third Thursday of the month in the Toomey Room of Town Hall, unless otherwise specified.
