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!

#SonomaStrong #SonomaProud

Our hearts go out to our community in the face of this catastrophic event of loss and suffering. The impact of the North Bay fires stretches across our entire community. 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 who worked hard to protect our community, and our second responders – healthcare professionals who quickly set up crisis clinics at all of the shelters.

As we look to the future, the Commission is committed to bringing awareness and attention to the most under-served members of our community. May we all work together to rebuild and recover with both equity and intersectionality in mind, for a stronger community.

SafeSonomaCounty Update

Please note that SafeSonomaCounty, an innovative resource and referral website project being built by the Commission, has been put on hold in the aftermath of the fires. But more than ever, we are reminded of the spirit behind the Public Service Announcement filmed earlier this year by members of our diverse community. Stay tuned for updates in early 2018.
