Human Relations Mutual Assistance Consortium (HRMAC)

Partnering with Cities to Promote Positive Intergroup Relations

The Human Relations Mutual Assistance Consortium (HRMAC) was created in December, 1994 in response to a motion passed by the Board of Supervisors to establish a human relations infrastructure addressing the challenges posed by this County's tremendous cultural diversity.

Comprised of human relations organizations, city representatives and community members from throughout the County, HRMAC works successfully to develop a support system
for the delivery of human relations programs and services countywide helping cities to
manage tensions between groups of different cultures, ethnicity, race and religion.

Partnerships between county government and cities within Los Angeles are established through the signing of a Mutual Assistance Agreement which defines the terms by which
the County helps to increase the capacity of local cities to address their own intergroup tensions and to maximize available resources to develop intergroup relations plans that encompass short and long term conflict management interventions.

HRMAC Services

• Local support and assistance to manage tensions between different cultural, ethnic, racial and religious groups

• Resources and referrals to effectively manage tensions and maintain positive intergroup relations

• Human relations trainings for city staff and community activists on a quarterly basis

• Clearinghouse for information sharing about managing intergroup conflicts, hate crime, victim assistance and other human relations needs

• Technical assistance in the development of proactive citywide intergroup relations plans

• Information on human relations funding sources

HRMAC Regional Clusters

The Commission formed the HRMAC Regional Cluster Program to strengthen the ability of members to address their own human relations needs by maximizing their resources through combined efforts with nearby cities to address mutual human relations issues.

How Clusters Work

HRMAC city and community representatives within a common region meet regularly to share promising practices, resources and collaborative approaches to address human relations concerns in their cluster area.
