What We Do
Protection of Rights
We work to protect the rights of all Providence residents through local, state, and federal advocacy, public education, and partnership development to enforce and advance civil rights protections.
Work to reform internal government processes through collaboration across departments. This can include providing equity and access toolkits, ie on department budgets, including language access materials as well as increasing transparency and accountability across city services.
We aim to elevate Providence’s diverse communities through unique cultural programming and community collaborations. The PHRC is hoping to expand this work to include innovative opportunities for community ownership.
Coordinating Boards and Commissions
Provide staff support and coordination for the Equal Pay Task Force and the Providence Human Relations Commission
