According to the San Jose Mercury News, the Mountain View (CA) city council decided to keep its human relations commission and provide it with additional resources. The commission has jurisdiction over various social and family issues, including child care and ensuring affordable housing.
Pleading for the commission to be saved, Commissioner Kalwant Sandhu told the council, "I believe you believe in human dignity.... The city needs it. The citizens need it.''
The article noted that "California has 52 human relations commissions" and that "Fremont's commission has helped sponsor an anti-hate forum focusing on discrimination against Muslims and Sikhs."
