On Saturday, the Davis Human Relations Commission will host an open community forum titled “Breaking the Silence 2: Making Systemic Progress.” It will run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Veterans’ Memorial Center, 203 E. 14th St., and is free and open to the public.

Attendees will hear about community social justice progress during 2013. Several institutional representatives, as well as members of local social justice groups, will share information about new programs and initiatives and listen to concerns of community members in a panel facilitated by Commissioner David Greenwald.

Institutional representatives include Lucas Frerichs, Davis City Council member; Rahim Reed, associate executive vice chancellor for campus community relations at UC Davis; the Rev. Mahsea Evans; and Darren Pytel, assistant Davis police chief.

Community groups will include the Davis Phoenix Coalition, Vanguard Court Watch, Yolo Interfaith Immigration Network, Neighborhood Court and a citizen presentation by Diane Evans.

Participants are also invited to share any recent experiences of hate crimes, bullying or racism.

The commission hopes the forum will:

* Build on the successful 2012 “Breaking the Silence of Racism” event held by the commission, expanding the discussion to include additional forms of discrimination;

* Showcase the initiatives and progress made since the 2012 event;

* Allow participants to share their stories of discrimination that continues in the community;

* Pinpoint areas where gaps in policy and programs exist; and

* Continue and advance community dialogues on social justice.
