The Dayton City Commission established the Human Relations Council (HRC) in May of 1962.
The mission of the HRC is to keep peace, order and harmony among the citizens of Dayton, promote tolerance and goodwill, and ensure equality of treatment and opportunity for all. A 10-member Board appointed to three-year terms by the Dayton City Commission makes sure the HRC is working to promote and ensure a culture of fair treatment and equal access to opportunities to all who live, work, play and gather in the city of Dayton.
The Council processes any complaint of discrimination against any person because of race, color, religion, sex, ancestry, national origin, place of birth, age, marital status, or handicap in violation of any ordinance of city, laws of the state or of the United States. The Council also implements procurement programs that provide opportunities to minority, women, small business and disadvantaged business enterprises.
