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. The JHRC investigates complaints of alleged discriminatory or unfair practices in the areas of employment, housing and public accommodations based on a person’s race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, 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.
