The NYC Human Rights Law charges the Commission with educating the public about the protections of the Law and encouraging dialogue, understanding, and respect among New York City’s many communities. To carry forth this mandate, the Community Relations Bureau (CRB) provides direct services related to the Law’s protected classes, engages in pre-complaint intervention at the community level, and convenes community members for events, trainings and other programming that educates the public about their rights and obligations under the Law. The Community Relations Bureau is available to the public through its five borough-based Community Service Centers.
CRB works in close collaboration with community-based organizations, faith-based organizations and houses of worship, schools and youth-focused organizations, business improvement districts and chambers of commerce, local elected officials, community boards, block associations and tenant groups, and a wide swath of partner government agencies.
