Mission Statement

The mission of the Louisville Metro Human Relations Commission is to promote unity, understanding, and equal opportunity among all people of Louisville Metro and to eliminate all forms of bigotry, bias, and hatred from the community.

 

The Commission: A Brief History

The Louisville Metro Human Relations Commission was established by the City of Louisville to protect its citizens from unlawful discrimination.  In 1963, the City first adopted an Ordinance prohibiting places of public accommodations from refusing service based on race.  In 1966, Jefferson County Fiscal Court adopted Anti-Discrimination laws in the areas of public accommodations, employment, and housing. Also in 1966, the City of Louisville and Jefferson County Fiscal Court entered into an agreement establishing the Human Relations Commission as a joint City/County Compact signed in 1986 by the Mayor and County Judge. The Compact Agreement mandates that the Commission "shall endeaor to promote and secure mutual understanding and respect among all economic, religious, ethnic, and social groups in the metroplitan area of Louisville and Jefferson County, and shall act as conciliator in controversies involving inter-group and inter-racial relations.  The Commission shall cooperate with Federal, State and other City and County agencies in efforts to develop harmonious inter-group and inter-racial relations, and shall endeavor to enlist the support of civic, religious, labor, and industrial and commercial groups dedicated to the improvement of human relations and the elimination of discriminatory practices."
