Human Relations Commission - Mission Statement

The mission of the Human Relations Commission is to eliminate discrimination in housing, public accommodations and employment through investigation, identification, and consultation.  We administer the County HRC Ordinance in the interests of all citizens to ensure the equal opportunities of all persons.  The Commission provides a system of equal justice for employer-employee, landlord-tenant, business-patron and lending institution-home buyer. The Commission educates individuals through workshops and seminars to confront discrimination, while at the same time teaching the inherent value of diversity.  Our goal is to build bridges of respect and understanding among diverse groups within Erie County.
