2001 Annual Meeting
The Orange County Human Relations Commission: Managing Diversity and Transformation

by Dennis J. Downey, University of California-Irvine

In the March issue of Footnotes, readers learned from Fred Smoller and Roberta Lessor's article of the many dramatic social changes experienced by Orange County in recent decades. None has been more remarkable than its demographic shifts: in 1970, the county's Latino and Asian American populations were 10 percent and 1 percent, respectively; by the 2000 census, those numbers have risen to 31 percent and 14 percent.
