Jacksonville Human Rights Commission

Since 1967, the Jacksonville Human Rights Commission (JHRC or Commission) has worked to ensure that all Jacksonville residents enjoy a community free of discriminatory practices.  As an enforcement agency, the JHRC investigates complaints of alleged discriminatory or unfair practices in the areas of employment, housing and public accommodations because of a person’s race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, marital status or familial status.  The JHRC also promotes mutual understanding and respect among members of all economic, social, racial, religious and ethnic groups; and works to eliminate discrimination against and antagonism between religious, racial and ethnic groups.

The JHRC conducts studies on trending human relations issues and provides training opportunities on anti-discrimination laws, and the impact of cultural sensitivity on health matters and law enforcement practices. Additionally, the JHRC sponsors and facilitates community conversations on a variety of issues that serve to foster a deeper understanding of other racial, ethnic, religious and cultural norms.
