The Human Relations Advisory Board advises the City Council about racial, religious, ethnic, cultural, disability or other human relations issues affecting the City of Mesa and delivery of City services to Mesa residents, businesses, and visitors. The board recommends policies to eliminate discrimination and prejudice and to promote mutual understanding and harmony. The board serves as a public forum for citizen input on human relations issues. Meetings are held on the fourth Wednesday of the month at 6:00 p.m. at the City Council Chambers, 57 E. First Street, or at other locations throughout the City. Members are appointed for staggered terms of three years and represent the City's diverse population. Call (480) 644-5432 for information.
