Frederick County Human Relations Committee seeks dialogue -- Gazette.Net


The Frederick County Human Relations Commission will celebrate the 64th anniversary of United Nations Human Rights Day with a panel discussing how to increase dialogue after a divisive political season.

The commission will host the panel “Now that the elections are over, can’t we all just get along?” at 10:30 a.m. on Dec. 15 in the community room at the C. Burr Artz Public Library in Frederick.

Panel members will discuss a wide range of social justice issues, as well as take questions from the audience.

Members of the public are invited to share their thoughts and concerns regarding human rights in Frederick County.

Virtually every poll has shown the country is divided essentially in half on important issues, said Miles Ward, director of Frederick County’s Human Relations Department, who’s helping to organize the event.

He said he hopes the event will help people communicate respectfully even when they have major differences.

The event will also honor Frederick Police Chief Kim Dine, who ended his decade of service in the city Dec. 5 to become chief of the U.S. Capitol Police.
