Commission on Civil Rights

About The Commission

The Commission on Civil Rights is tasked by Ordinance 187032, Article 16 to investigate complaints of discrimination and enforce against violators through fines and corrective action. The Commission works in close partnership with the Civil + Human Rights and Equity Department to hold businesses and individuals accountable for discriminatory practices that deny equal treatment to any individual in private employment, housing, education, or commerce. 

The Commission on Civil Rights bi-monthly meetings are held every second Thursday of every other month at 2:00 p.m., virtually at the time being. Meeting agendas are generally finalized one week in advance.
