The NYC Commission on Human Rights combats discrimination and fights to ensure that everyone can live in, work in, or visit New York City free from discrimination and harassment. The Commission regularly hosts and participates in events in all five boroughs of New York City.

Among our monthly events, our staff works with organizations to provide free workshops to educate staff and community members about their rights and obligations under the law.  The workshops are offered regularly, per our schedule below, or on-demand.  Check out our full list of workshops.  You may request a workshop for your organization.  If you would like to schedule a meeting or workshop at your office, please call one of our Community Service Centers or dial 311 and ask for Human Rights.

COVID-19 updates:

1. Due to the current pandemic, Commission workshops below are being offered virtually.
2. The Commission has added new events in communities facing heightened levels of discrimination and harassment as a result of COVID-19 stigma. View a list of the Commission's COVID-19 Events.
