Human Rights Survey

THE SURVEY HAS CONCLUDED

Dear Humboldt County Residents, The Humboldt County Human Rights Commission would like to thank you for participating in our survey. Our survey ended on March 15th, 2022. This survey would not have been possible without the generosity offered by our community. We will report survey results to the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors in the form of policy recommendations about inclusivity, equity, and diversity on May 24th, 2022. This is a public meeting, and all are invited to attend.

 

Additionally, an executive summary will be made available here on our website. If you have any questions regarding the survey or this research project in general, don't hesitate to contact Ellen Murphy at elm98@humboldt.edu, (707) 758-3013 or Jamie Jensen at jamie.jensen@humboldt.edu. Finally, if you have any concerns with this study or questions about your rights as a participant, contact the Institutional Review Board for the Protection of Human Subjects at irb@humboldt.edu or (707) 826-5165.
