The City of Portland deeply believes that everyone within our city deserves to be valued and respected,
to feel safe, and be free from discrimination.
On March 19, 2008, City Council approved the creation of an Office of Human Relations (OHR) and a Human
Rights Commission. The mission of these two efforts is to work toward:
Eliminating discrimination and bigotry,
Strengthening inter-group relationships, and
Fostering 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. It will house the Human Rights Commission, comprised
of 11-15 volunteer commissioners, who are charged with setting the strategic priorities of the office.
