New Albany: A highly ethical city?

Ethics, human rights commissions still haven’t heard a case

(Continued)

NEW ALBANY — GETTING THE WORD OUT

In the case of the human rights commission, Bell believes the public still doesn’t fully understand the role of the body.

He said the commission is planning to hold a forum where members of the community and different organizations are invited to learn more about the board.

“We would love for the entire community to know that we’re here to help,” he said.

New Albany’s human rights commission is one of the first established in the state. Housing, employment and voting rights — Bell said the commission is there to protect those who endure discrimination on just about any front.

“We want people to know that if they hear complaints or know of somebody who is being discriminated against, that they have an outlet that they can go to,” Bell said.

• The New Albany Human Rights Commission was established in July of 2012 and the Ethics Commission in August of 2012 by the New Albany City Council.
