The Providence Human Relations Commission holds a memorandum of understanding with the Rhode Island Commission on Human Rights to refer the investigation and adjudication of discrimination complaints in Providence under their purview to the State body.
If you need to report an incidence of discrimination, individuals may report it directly to the Providence Human Relations Commission. The Commission will forward the report in a timely manner to the Rhode Island Commission on Human Rights for investigation. Please note that not all discrimination is currently illegal and that the PHRC is committed to advocating to expand discrimination protections.
