Promoting Tolerance and Diversity

The Morris County Human Relations Commission promotes tolerance, diversity, communication, and appreciation for the many ethnic and cultural influences on our communities. A great many cultures are represented in Morris County and our communities and citizens benefit from the variety of people, customs, and traditions. Welcoming and understanding the diversity makes us a stronger county.

Some of the programs and projects in which the Human Relations Committee has participated include:

  • Charter member of the New Jersey Coalition against Human Trafficking, and partnering for the Stand against Human Trafficking on the Morristown Green.
  • Supporting the “What Prejudice Means to Me” contest sponsored by the National Council of Jewish Women – West Morris Section
  • Creating a diversity category at the film festival and awarding a prize to the top film in that category
  • Supporting immigrant students at the County College of Morris for in county residency tuition.
  • Preparing a response protocol for crisis management for communities when a cultural issue arises, in order to assist with communication and resolution
