Human Relations Commission

Human Relations Commission is a municipal agency which enforces the City's Human Relations Rights laws. The Commission works to end discrimination and promote equal human rights. The Commission has citywide authority and accepts complaints from all citizens and visitors to High Point, who believe they have been discriminated against. The Commission is responsible for conducting public programs and issue reports on human relations. They also make recommendations to the Mayor and the City Council for legislation or other action regarding human relations practices.

The Commission does not have jurisdiction over County/City government, County/City Board of Education or Community Colleges. High Point Human Relations Commissioners are not elected officials but rather approved and appointed volunteers by the High Point City Council.
