At a sparsely attended Monday, Feb. 13 meeting of the East Lansing Human Rights Commission (HRC), commissioners planned upcoming coffee and conversation sessions and heard a presentation from Mayors for Peace, an organization promoting nuclear disarmament.
Commissioners spent little time discussing the civil rights of a resident who was allegedly evicted from a DTN property because of ongoing settlement negotiations.
With Commissioners Jacqueline Beaupre and Krystal Davis-Dunn and council liaison Mayor Ron Bacon absent, the commission moved quickly through its business, beginning with public comment.
Chris Root, vice chair of the East Lansing Independent Police Oversight Commission, gave an update on that commission’s workings.

Speakers will include Angie Weis Gammell, policy director of the Wilson Center for Science and Justice at Duke Law School, and Sean Holland of Black Lives Matter and One Love Global.
