Morgantown City Council established a Human Rights Commission in 2001. The purpose of the Human Rights Commission is "to provide leadership for addressing community interaction and fairness concerns. It works to ensure that the City is not only providing services, but maintaining ways in which a community can live together inclusively, functionally, and justly despite differences, complexities, and conflicts."
