Human Rights Commission seeks input through survey


September 11, 2012

Snohomish County’s Commission on Human Rights has created a short survey in order to gather input on how the community views human-rights issues in the region.

In addition, the commission is hosting an International Human Rights Day observance and invites residents to help in planning.

The survey, located at under “Spotlight,” is an opportunity to tell the commission more about human rights activities within Snohomish County and how the commission can play a greater role in assessing human-rights issues.

The survey should only take about 10 minutes to complete but will be used to help the commission as it plans its agenda for 2013. Responses will be collected through September and made available for discussion in October.

Planning meetings for the International Human Rights Day, which will be Dec. 10, will be held the second Thursday of each month beginning Sept. 13.

Meetings will be from 5 to 7 p.m. in the First Floor Public Meeting Room of the Robert J. Drewel Building, 3000 Rockefeller Ave.

International Human Rights Day celebrates the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted Dec. 10, 1948.

For more information on the survey, contact Andrea Pettit at or 425-388-7308.
