Name: Commission on Human Relations - RG 305
Variant Name: Illinois Interracial Commission

Historical Note:

The Illinois Interracial Commission originally was established in 1943 at the direction of the Governor. The commission, with twenty members appointed by the Governor, received legislative approval in 1947 (L. 1947, p. 1680). The commission investigates employment conditions, cooperates with civic, religious, and educational organizations that promote "tolerance and good will," and reports to the Governor and the General Assembly every biennium. In 1951 the legislature changed the commission's name to the Commission on Human Relations (L. 1951, p. 1994).
