The members of Newington's Human Rights Commission (HRC) would like to know how Newington residents think our community is doing to respect and uplift the lived experiences of all residents and what we can do to better foster inclusivity. We ask that you answer a few questions about your experiences in town. The survey should take less than 5 minutes. Your responses will help the HRC to better understand our town's climate as perceived by a diverse set of voices and perspectives. It will also help to guide our work as we seek to strengthen our community through the value of diversity.
Your answers to this survey are completely confidential and only aggregate/completely de-identified responses will be available publicly following the survey.
