What We Do
In the Human Rights Department, we work to build the community's capacity to ensure fairness, equal opportunity, and access to government and community services.

On the community side, we partner with residents and community organizations by supporting efforts to create a community filled with residents who are better informed about government and how to access government services, and who are actively working with government and other partners to positively impact significant and identified basic needs in the community and in the institutions to which they belong.

On the organizational side, we partner with other City Departments by supporting efforts to develop and support a diverse, inclusive, and engaged workforce that is equippted to effectively serve all members of the public and work collaboratively with the public in solving community problems.
We encourage the public to contact the office with questions, ideas or suggestions that could help our community become safer, more civil, and more inclusive.
