 Who we are?

 The Fairfax County Student Human Rights Commission is the regions's first commision comprised entirely of high school students with the mission of:

  • Promoting dialogues on diversity amoung youth;
  • Fostering a greater understanding and appreiciation of differences;
  • Creating exposure to human and civil rights laws, such as the Fairfax County Human Rights Ordinance and Fair Housing Act; and
  • Encouraging leadership and active participation in government.

The Fairfax County Office of Human Rights & Equity Programs in partnership with Fairfax County Public Schools launched the Student Human Rights Commission (SHRC) program during the 2009 - 2010 school year, and the program continues to grow year after year.  Each school year, the SHRC hosts events, plans activities, and facilitates campaigns in support of its mission.
