Orange County North Carolina is committed to the prevention and elimination of bias and discrimination. In 1987 the Orange County Board of Commissioners (“BOCC”) created the Human Relations Commission, an advisory board to the BOCC, whose charge it is to address and attempt to remedy the…harm created through the practices of discrimination, bias, hatred and civil inequality. In 2004, the BOCC asked the Human Relations Commission to develop a Social Justice Goal. After a great deal of community participation, the Social Justice goal was adopted in September 2010. Since that time the BOCC has also committed to using the goal as a tool for reviewing items voted on by the BOCC. The Board has allocated money for a social justice fund which has funding items such as: additional support for the refugee communities and affordable housing for tenants displaced from mobile home parks. The BOCC has also committed funding so that all County employees can receive racial equity awareness training.
