Human Rights Commission

About Us:

The Orange County Human Rights Commission was established in 1970 to serve the citizens of Orange County. Its primary objectives are:

  • To foster mutual respect and understanding among all racial, religious and nationality groups in the County. 
  • To inquire into incidents of tension and conflict among or between various racial, religious and nationality groups and to act to relieve this tension. 
  • To conduct and recommend programs in education to increase good will among the diverse inhabitants of the County. 
  • To receive complaints of alleged discrimination because of race, creed, color, national origin, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, marital status, arrest and/or conviction record and to attempt to resolve such conflicts.

The Commission meets the first Thursday of each month at 3:30 p.m. Contact the office for the meeting location which may vary.
