Human Rights Commission

The Rockland County Commission on Human Rights is dedicated to investigating discriminatory practices related to housing, employment, race, creed, age, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation, gender/sex, and/or disability.

It is our mission to:

  • Give priority to addressing human rights violations, both acute and chronic, particularly those that put life in imminent peril.
  • Make every effort to foster mutual respect and understanding among ethnic, cultural, religious and nationality groups.
  • Be committed to offering information that can reduce and/or eradicate tension and conflict among/between various groups in our community.
  • Initiate and maintain strategic alliances with local groups to build relationships with allied agencies whose work complements and supports our mission.

If you believe you have been discriminated against, fill out a Confidential Information Sheet and submit it to our office.
