Swearing in the New San Francisco LBE Advisory Committee –

Mr. Wayne Perry is sworn in as a member of the San Francisco Local Business Enterprise Advisory Committee after appointment to the committee by Mayor Ed Lee. The Advisory Committee is an integral and vitally important component of the Human Rights Commission, providing for community involvement and opportunity for in-depth study and exploration of issues of interest to the San Francisco business community.

From 1964, the Human Rights Commission grew in response to City government’s mandate to address the causes of and problems resulting from prejudice, intolerance, bigotry and discrimination. The Mayor and the Board of Supervisors gave the Human Rights Commission more and broader powers and duties to address these problems, and passed additional ordinances, which were implemented by the Human Rights Commission. In June 1990, the voters of San Francisco established the Human Rights Commission as a Charter Commission (see Section 3.699-5 of the Charter).
