Welcome to the Burbank Human Relations Council

Building Togetherhood in our Community!

About Us

How We're Helping

Founded in 1958, as a community based organization, the Burbank Human Relations Council seeks to eliminate barriers that separate people from each other and build bridges of understanding. BHRC has continued to serve the Burbank community as a resource, and for advocacy. We promote equality and understanding through education and action. We are not funded by the city, or any other entity. We are an all-volunteer, fully independent organization.  


GOALS:

  

  • To create an attitude and environment that is open and accepting of every person without regard to race, religion, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation, or age.
  • To promote understanding and cooperation among the diverse groups that compose our community.
  • To study and seek ways to moderate or eliminate intergroup tension.
