Southwestern professor joins LA Human Relations Commission

SouthwesternProfessor Isabelle Gunning from Southwestern Law School has been appointed to the Los Angeles County Human Relations Commission. The purpose of the Los Angeles County Commission on Human Relations is to promote positive race and human relations and it does this by developing programs to address issues such as racism, homophobia, religious prejudice and anti-immigrant sentiment.

Professor Gunning has been active in civil rights issues for a long time, and speaking of her exciting new appointment she says, "I am extremely honored to have been appointed by Third District Supervisor Sheila Kuehl to the Los Angeles County Human Relations Commission. The Commission works to 'transform prejudice into acceptance, inequity into justice and hostility into peace.' I feel that my own work over the years in civil and human rights; mediation, dispute resolution and peacemaking; and interfaith communication and connection will all enable me to contribute to the terrific work that the Human Relations Commission is doing. And I am excited to be a part of it."

The Los Angeles County Commission on Human Relations is one of the oldest human relations agencies of its kind in the United States.
