|Civil Rights Enforcement Section
The Civil Rights Enforcement Division, enforces the City's Civil Rights Ordinance, which protects our citizens against discrimination in employment, housing and public accommodations on the basis of race, national origin, sex, religion, disability, age, sexual orientation, familial status, marital status and gender identity. The ordinance is substantially equivalent to state and federal laws. If you feel that you have been discriminated against on any of these bases, file a complaint with our office, and an investigation will be conducted.
