The Nassau County Commission on Human Rights was established on April 8, 1963 with the approval of the County Executive and the Board of Supervisors. The Commission on Human Rights consists of 15 Commissioners representing men and women of various races and ethnicities, and persons with disabilities.

The Nassau County Commission on Human Rights is committed to improving relations and insuring equality of opportunity in Nassau County. The Commission’s mandate is to eliminate discrimination in employment, housing, places of public accommodation and education. In Nassau County, discrimination is defined as any difference in treatment based on actual or perceived race, creed, color, national origin, ethnicity, gender, religion, source of income, sexual orientation, age, marital status, familial status or disability. Persuasion, conciliation, investigation and education are the major tools used to accomplish our goals.

The Commission is committed to promoting harmony among the diverse populations of Nassau County, by developing and initiating programs, literature and projects which promote mutual respect through understanding and education. To that end the Commission is comprised of an Investigation Unit, a Job Development Center, a Community Relations Unit and a Pre-Trial Services Unit.
