Commission on Human Rights

The Brockton Commission on Human Rights, Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion’s goals and functions are to ensure that all city residents are treated fairly and equally by eliminating bigotry, discrimination, intolerance, and prejudice including but not limited to prejudice and discrimination against all people because of their race, language, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic class, religion, marital status, military status or age.

The commission shall assure that every individual shall have equal access to and benefit from all the public services, to protect every individual on the enjoyment and exercise of civil rights and to encourage and bring about mutual understanding and respect to all individuals of the city. The Commissioners appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the City Council support a welcoming environment by encouraging cooperation, tolerance, and respect among and by all persons who engage in both municipal and private business with City Departments or agencies and private enterprises, by advancing, promoting and advocating for civil rights of all constituents through advocacy, awareness, education, and outreach.
