|What We Do
Community Engagement: We work with individuals and groups on programs designed to prevent tensions between groups and address inequality.
Education & Training: We engage in education activities to promote legal, civil and respectful behavior that will help to prevent discrimination, improve understanding and collaboration, and reduce tensions between groups.
Enforcement: We mediate discrimination complaints, educate on legal requirements, and forward complaints that are not mediated to the City Attorney’s Office for a determination of the legal merits of the complaint.
Workforce Development: We work with individuals and organizations on workforce recruitment and retention strategies.
|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.
