George Alber, an at-large member of the Executive Committee of the Fairfax County chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, was recently appointed by Sharon Bulova to the Fairfax County Human Rights Commission for a three-year term. Alber joined the Fairfax County branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People in early 2014.
Since then he has served on numerous committees for the branch and as a representative for the branch to different county task forces and commissions. In addition, Alber is a member of the Fairfax County Communities of Trust Committee. Since July 2015, Alber has led the branch’s advocacy to change the name of J.E.B. Stuart High School.
The mission of the Fairfax County Human Rights Commission is “to institute an affirmative human rights program of positive efforts to eliminate discrimination and provide citizen recourse for discriminatory acts.”
In addition to his service on the county’s human rights commission, Alber will continue to lead the branch’s work to change the name of J.E.B. Stuart High School in coordination with various other community groups. For more information, visit fairfaxcounty.gov/ohrep/hrd.
