Citizens' Unity Commission

The Citizens' Unity Commission (CUC) is a 20 member, citizen-based commission, which was created as a result of findings and recommendations from several studies on diversity issues, in the City of Hampton, in 1995. Since its inception, this commission has focused on promoting and sponsoring activities and events that bring citizens together, encourages positive interactions between diverse individuals and groups, promotes the value of respect for differences, and creates opportunities for learning and growing together. Apply to join the commission, or attend a meeting: 2nd Thursday of the month, 6 p.m.-8p.m., Community Development Conference Room, Fifth Floor, City Hall, 22 Lincoln Street
