A North Wheeling pastor is getting another chance to improve lives in West Virginia.
Reverend Darrell Cummings was honored to be sworn in for a second time as the chairman of West Virginia’s Human Rights Commission on Thursday.
The HRC is a state-wide agency helping individuals who feel they are being discriminated against.
“West Virginia was one of the first states to do it and it’s free and it’s open to the public and all you have to do is let us know. We’ll see what we can do, we’ll investigate it. We try to bring peace we try to bring reconciliation and we try to have a better West Virginia,” Reverend Cummings said.
Recently the HRC in West Virginia created a law for equal maternity leave in the workplace for both men and women.
Cummings will serve as chairman until 2017.
