Commission on Human Rights

Working with you – residents of the Sonoma County community – we represent your needs, issues, and concerns in areas that affect your human rights. We work to bring attention to the issues faced by marginalized or disadvantaged members of our communities to those in elected office. Through us, you have a voice.

Currently, we haven't any openings, but a number of our ad hoc committees and liaison groups are accepting volunteers at this time. Please consider getting involved!

Tuesday, October 24, 2017 Meeting CANCELLED

Due to the catastrophic fires in our community, the Tuesday, October 24, 2017 Commission on Human Rights meeting has been cancelled.

Please direct any questions to chr@sonoma-county.org or (707) 565-2693, and follow any future notifications at:

http://www.sonomacountychr.org/ or https://www.facebook.com/SonomaCountyCommissionOnHumanRights/

We hope to return to our regular monthly meeting schedule in the near future, but for now, we are focused on our community’s recovery and healing.

Thoughts and Prayers to Our Sonoma County Community

Our hearts go out to our community in the face of this catastrophic event of loss and suffering. These fires are far from over, and we have a long road ahead, but the many Commissioners and County employees volunteering out in the community have seen firsthand the incredible sense of community and caring we have here in Sonoma County.

Special thoughts, prayers, and gratitude to the amazing crews of fire fighters and law enforcement working hard to protect our community, and to those manning the County's Emergency Operations Center around the clock.

Please consider signing up for Nixle notices by texting 888-777, and please heed the evacuation notices and the orders issued by law enforcement.

The Thursday, October 19, 2017 meeting of the Junior Commission on Human Rights has been cancelled.

We have seen this message all over social media: The love in the air is thicker than the smoke. #sonomaproud

Stay safe!
