We are grateful to live in a County in which hate has no home, and welcome all in the rich tapestry that is Prince George's County.

The HRC stands with the County Executive in denouncing acts of racial violence, and in affirming Prince George’s County’s commitment to equity, equality, and justice for all. Please read the County Executive’s statement on the murder of George Floyd here.
