Thank you for your interest in the work of the Pittsburgh Commission on Human Relations.
For more than 50 years, people who work, live or come to our city to visit or use many of its places of public accommodation have looked to the Commission for assistance in resolving issues of unfair practices.
The Commission is proud of its accomplishments as agents of change and fairness in the places we work, live and play as well as the Commission's contributions in making Pittsburgh one of America’s most livable cities.
These accomplishments, while significant, do not mean that it is a time to rest. Many challenges remain to ensure that our residents enjoy equal access to employment opportunities, housing in neighborhoods that are welcoming and equality in the provision of services.
Discrimination today is far more subtle than in the past and continues to be a major obstacle for many of our citizens, as it unfairly restricts or limits their opportunity to provide for themselves and their families and to positively contribute our city’s greatness.
The Commission remains committed to eliminate all forms of unlawful discrimination in Pittsburgh.
