PHRC announces new dates in statewide Beloved Community Tour
Lancaster and Chester Counties stops were both postponed in June

Harrisburg, PA- The Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission (PHRC) is excited to announce the new dates for stops in Chester and Lancaster counties, as part of their statewide Beloved Community tour.

  • Monday, July 10, 5:30-7 p.m.
    • Struble Room, Chester County Library, 450 Exton Square Parkway, Exton, PA.
  • Monday, July 17, 5:30-7p.m.
    • YWCA of Lancaster, 110 N. Lime Street, Lancaster, PA.

"This statewide tour will provide a forum where the PHRC can listen and better understand the concerns of the community," said Lassiter. "It will also serve as an opportunity to better our Beloved Community, create relationships and partnerships with local leaders and organizations to help them solve controversial issues within communities."

The PHRC created the Beloved Community framework to assist communities of the commonwealth to intentionally build a culture of peace, understanding and tolerance despite our differences within the context of an increasingly diverse and interconnected world.

The PHRC launched the statewide tour on June 6 with a visit to Philadelphia.

Each listening session will include a presentation on the Beloved Community framework and an overview of the services and programs offered by the PHRC. Lassiter will then open it up for questions from the community. Details about additional stops will be released as they become available. PHRC is still looking for locations to host upcoming sessions, anyone interested in partnering with the PHRC should contact Amanda Brothman at
