Historical NoteReturn to Top

The 12-member Human Rights Commission was established in 1963 to promote equality and understanding among Seattle residents, and to study, investigate, and make recommendations regarding discrimination based on race, color, religion, and national origin. The Commission reported to the Executive Department. In 1969, with creation of the Human Rights Department, the Commission's function became more advisory. It makes recommendations to the Department and conducts hearings relating to housing and employment discrimination.
