2004 Summer/Fall Edition
part of the Commission's aggressive public education campaign,
CCHR hosted two Community Press Breakfast meetings in September.
The events took place at CCHR's Brooklyn and Queens Community
Service Centers. CCHR executive staff members encouraged local,
ethnic and daily press to reach out to their readers and assist
the Commission in informing the public of the Commission's mission
and the City's Human Rights Law.
Following the events, the Commission received extensive media
coverage in some of the City's daily newspapers, local Brooklyn
and Queens community newspapers, and various Arab, Caribbean,
Chinese, Korean, Muslim, Polish, Russian, South Asian, and Spanish
publications and television.
