The Amherst Human Rights Commission’s primary purpose is to promote a community of mutual respect and to honor the diversity of our community. We strive to promote attitudes of compassion and concern for our neighbors. To encourage these values in Amherst, we have initiated the Human Rights Youth Heroism Awards, an annual celebration of Amherst area youth. 2023 represents the seventeenth year of these awards! It is the Commission’s intent to identify and celebrate youth who have shown a special gift from the heart or an ability to love and care for one another. We are looking for young people who have demonstrated acts of kindness, usefulness, social courage and/or community service within their families, their schools, or the community. Please help us by nominating a youth you have observed displaying one or more of these traits in the past year. Youth groups may also be nominated to share an award.
Town Offices will be closed on Monday, May 29th in observance of Memorial Day.
