In 1990, the Columbus Community Relations Commission was established to help bring civic leaders, business leaders, citizens and elected officials together on issues of ethnic, racial and cultural diversity.  Mayor Michael B. Coleman and Community Relations Commission Executive Director Napoleon A. Bell II are committed to opening the doors and neighborhoods of Columbus to every family.  Through the work of the Community Relations Commission our vision of Building a Community For All can be a reality.
