long-beach-city-seal Human Dignity VolunteersThe City of Long Beach Human Dignity Program is now recruiting volunteers for the 2010-2011 Assistance Team.  The program teaches volunteers how to assist victims of hate crime and bias incidents in the City of Long Beach.

The effort is part of the City’s Human Dignity Program, founded in 1999 to ensure that all residents in the city of Long Beach are treated with courtesy and respect regardless of their racial background, their nation of origin, the religion they practice, their sexual orientation, gender, or disability status.

We invite residents who are interested in investing in their community by promoting peace and inclusion of all people who live, work, and play in the City of Long Beach. The training will consist of 17 hours of classroom training provided by The California Conference for Equality and Justice.  Visit the Human Dignity website for application, training dates and more information.

Applications are due Friday, July 30, 2010
