Human Rights & Inclusion Committee


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

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


Every third Thursday of the month at 7pm in the Toomey Room of Town Hall, unless otherwise specified.
