Human Relations Commission

About The Commission

BUILDING BRIDGES, ADVANCING EQUITY, PROMOTING PEACE

The Human Relations Commission, a mayor-appointed advisory board, promotes intergroup peacebuilding, equity, and human rights in the City of Los Angeles by transforming community engagement and dialogue into sustainable programs and policy. It was established through the City Charter in 1966, following the Watts Civil Unrest and policy recommendations outlined in the McCone Commission’s report to create pathways for communication of local community concerns to city leadership. The HRC’s work has evolved over the years, exploring numerous intergroup engagement and peacebuilding models such as town halls, convening meetings, and facilitated dialogues.

The HRC powers and administrative functions are defined under Los Angeles City Charter Ordinance No. 181193, Article 5, Sec. 22.475. The HRC resides in the Civil + Human Rights and Equity Department (LA Civil Rights), which is overseen by Executive Director Capri Maddox.

The Human Relations Commission meets monthly on the fourth Wednesday of every month at 12:00 PM.
