Welcome to the Human Rights Advisory Commission

The mission of the Human Rights Advisory Commission is to promote equal opportunity for all persons of Barnstable County regardless of race, color, religious creed, national origin, gender, age, ancestry, sexual or affectional preference marital, family or military status, source of income, neighborhood or disability, where unlawful discrimination exists in housing, employment, education, public accommodations, town or county services, insurance, banking, credit and health care.

After the original Barnstable County Human Rights Commission was established in 2005, the BCHRAC was reconstituted as a nine (9) member, County appointed Commission, pursuant to Barnstable County Ordinance 19-10, dated May 22, 2019, continuing to promotion of the County policies on human rights. Throughout the Commission’s history, it has provided a forum for the public and local organizations and agencies to raise concerns regarding possible human rights violations, as well as work to promote understanding and appreciation of the diverse culture in Barnstable County through education, programming and community action.
