The monthly meeting for the Portland Human Rights Commission (PHRC) is held on the first Wednesday of the month at 4:00 PM in downtown Portland.

The Portland Human Rights Commission [PHRC] website is here:  https://www.portlandoregon.gov/oehr/62221

The Office of Equity and Human Rights is wheelchair accessible.

There was no agenda posted by the PHRC for this November meeting, but a copy of the agenda is recorded on [this] video in the first few minutes. There has not been good record keeping by the HRC of the last 6 months of their meeting "agendas and minutes" of the meeting posted for the public. I have archived & documented related facts and information regarding the information that is gleaned or given out at these PHRC monthly meetings on my website:  http://www.joeanybody.com/id51.html

Office of Equity and Human Rights:


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
