Guam Advisory Committee In-Person Meeting for Study on Experiences and Perspectives Related to Alleged Discrimination

The Guam Advisory Committee (“Committee”) to the United States Commission on Civil Rights (“Commission”) is holding an in-person meeting on Wednesday, August 30, 2023 (ChST). The purpose of this meeting is to provide a public forum where members of the public can share their experiences and perspectives related to the alleged discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, age, disability, national origin, or in the administration of justice. The comments provided will inform the Committee when selecting their potential civil rights topic for investigation.

Committee Chair Vanessa Williams states, “The Committee is highly interested in hearing directly from our community members. We are inviting the public to share what they see as the most relevant civil rights issues affecting our island. This Committee is another resource for the community to connect and further raise awareness of issues around inequality and discrimination – not only those existing within Guam but as Guam relates to the United States.”
