Office of Equity and Human Rights:

Mission

The Office of Equity and Human Rights provides education and technical support to City staff and elected officials, leading to recognition and removal of systemic barriers to fair and just distribution of resources, access and opportunity, starting with issues of race and disability.

What is Equity?

Equity is when everyone has access to the opportunities necessary to satisfy their essential needs, advance their well-being and achieve their full potential. We have a shared fate as individuals within a community and as communities within society. All communities need the ability to shape their own present and future. Equity is both the means to healthy communities and an end that benefits us all. - From the Portland Plan


The Office of Equity and Human Rights validates parking for all community members attending Human Rights Commission sessions. Please use only the Star Park Garage, located just one block south from the Office on SW Alder St between SW Broadway and SW 6th Ave. The entrance to the garage is on SW Alder.
