“No Hate in Our State” Initiative

In 2018. PHRC launched the new social justice initiative, "No Hate in Our State," to bridge divides and foster understanding in our communities. The initiative provides an open forum where residents, activists, and others can come together to voice their concerns, learn about their rights, and begin the healing process.
