Councilwoman Berz Receives Human Rights Award

On June 10, 2014, the Tennessee Human Rights Commission notified Councilwoman Berz that she had received the Jocelyn D. Wurzburg Civil Rights Legacy Award. Councilwoman Berz will be presented the award on September 19, 2014 at the Commission’s regular meeting in Nashville.

The award recognizes lifetimes of work that embody the ideals and principles of inclusion, equity, equality, access and diversity. In a letter to the Chattanooga Councilwoman and President of Private Dispute Resolution Services LLC, Executive Director Beverly Watts acknowledged Councilwoman Berz’s “dedication and leadership in cultivating more inclusive and equitable communities.”

The award will coincide with the release of the 2014 State of Human Rights in Tennessee Report by the Commission.

If you are in Nashville on September 19, please join Councilwoman Berz as she is recognized by our state’s human rights governing body. The commission is located in the William R. Snodgrass Tennessee Tower, 312 Rosa L. Parks Avenue in Nashville.
