How to File a Complaint

The PHRC works in partnership with our state-level counterpart, the Rhode Island Commission for Human Rights, to fully review charges of discrimination. If you believe that you have been a victim of illegal discrimination, we encourage you to file an official charge. Charges must be filed within six months (180 days) from the alleged unlawful act.

To file a charge, contact the Rhode Island Commission for Human Rights at (401) 222-2661, or visit
