The event is the annual celebration of the Rutherford Civil Rights Commission (RCRC). An official branch of the Borough of Rutherford, the RCRC works to ensure that all town citizens are provided equal rights and treated with respect. The RCRC’s mission is to eliminate discrimination, increase public awareness of civil rights through advocacy and education and offer conflict resolution services and mediation for civil rights matters. The only civil rights organization in Bergen County, the RCRC was founded in 1964 and has been a valuable resource to town residents ever since.
