Governor Charlie Crist has reappointed Billy Whitefox Stall of Panama City as a Commissioner of the Florida Commission on Human Relations (FCHR). Upon Senate approval, Whitefox Stall will serve a term expiring September 30, 2012.
“We are pleased to continue working with Commissioner Whitefox Stall to ensure that civil rights remains a top priority in Florida,” said Derick Daniel, Executive Director of the Commission.

The Florida Commission on Human Relations, established in 1969, is the state agency charged with enforcing the Florida Civil Rights Act and Fair Housing Act. Fair treatment, equal access and mutual respect are the benchmarks of the Commission’s commitment. Through education, outreach and partnerships, the Commission works to prevent discrimination through teaching best practices and fostering cultural understanding in communities statewide.
