About Us

​Community harmony matters to us all

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Community Relations is the human relations agency for the City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County. The department seeks to enhance community harmony and promote awareness of Charlotte-Mecklenburg’s growing multiculturalism by facilitating community dialogue and meetings, and coordinating resident and organizational coalitions to address community issues and concerns.

  • Addressing discrimination through enforcement of the city’s Fair Housing Ordinance.
  • Collaborating with CMPD to improve police community relations
  • Serving on host committees for cultural events (MLK Celebration) Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Citywide Birthday Celebration.
  • Serving as mediators during conflict resolution.
