About Us

On March 19, 2008, Portland City Council passed resolution 36571 which approved the creation of an Office of Human Relations (OHR) and a Human Rights Commission. Guided by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the mission of the Office of Human Relations is to work toward: Eliminating discrimination and bigotry, Strengthen inter-group relationships, and Foster greater understanding, inclusion and justice for those who live, work, study, worship, travel and play in Portland. The Office of Human Relations will provide leadership on civil and human rights issues through the coordination advocacy, education, research, and intervention services. Our office also houses the Human Rights Commission, comprised of 15 volunteer commissioners, who are charged with setting the strategic priorities of the office.
