Human Relations Commission Accepting Nominations for Embrace Civility Award
The City’s Human Relations Commission is seeking nominations for its 10th annual Embrace Civility Award. Members of the community may nominate individuals (or a group of people) who demonstrate and promote positive behavior. The purpose of the Embrace Civility Award is to honor those who demonstrate respectful and responsible actions towards others, actionable kindness and positive neighbor-to-neighbor relations.
Nomination forms are available at www.beverlyhills.org/embracecivilityaward. Hard copies of the downloaded form may also be submitted by mail. All nominations must be received by September 4, 2020.
In selecting a candidate/s, the award will be given to a community member who exemplifies one or more of the following attributes:
• Acts as a role model of positive behavior
• Takes a stand in support of respect and responsible actions
• Promotes positive neighbor-to-neighbor relations.
“We’re looking to honor someone who has created positive, lasting civil change and inspires others to take action,” said Human Relations Commission Chair Ori Blumenfeld. “We’re asking the community for their help in identifying our next Embrace Civility Award honoree/s.”
The winner will be honored by the City Council with a plaque at a future meeting. All nominees will be recognized by the Human Relations Commission.
The Embrace Civility Award is part of the ongoing, award winning Embrace Civility program, which promotes positive human relations in all aspects of community life. The program began in 2010, when the City of Beverly Hills Human Relations Commission established the importance of embracing civility and integrated the principles of civility, respect and responsible action into daily business at City Hall and municipal election proceedings.
