The Commission released a report summarizing the findings of a survey of 3,105 Muslim, Arab, South Asian, Jewish, and Sikh New Yorkers about their experiences of hate, harassment, and discrimination from July 2016 to late 2017 (i.e. the months leading up to, and after, the 2016 election).
As we celebrate and support NYC's LGBTQ communities during Pride month, the Commission has launched a new LGBTQ resource page to reaffirm their rights under the Law and make sure they know how to get help if they are being harassed or discriminated against.
Part of NYC's ongoing efforts to unite our faith-based communities, the Commission, the Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs, and the Community Affairs Unit hosted the third annual "Iftar in the City" on May 31st. Check out photos from last year's Iftar, stay tuned for photos of this year's to be posted shortly!

As part of the Commission's campaign to ensure that New Yorkers understand how we protect them against sexual harassment, we have rolled out a new short film inspired by a letter the Commission received detailing the impact of sexual harassment on a family.
