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!
