Kentucky has a growing network of local human rights commissions. These partners promote peace, mutual respect, understanding, and quality of life in their regions.
They provide a local presence and face-to-face contact necessary to individuals and communities in order to uphold security in an increasingly growing Commonwealth.
Local commissions assist by forwarding discrimination complaints to the Kentucky Commission on Human Rights. A few have local anti-discrimination ordinances that allow them to enforce these laws on a local level. The commissions hold education and outreach events to promote and highlight civil rights and equality.
Local human rights commissions are vital to Kentucky and the Kentucky Commission on Human Rights. Their assistance helps the Kentucky Commission on Human Rights provide a community presence in the 120 counties of the state.
