About Human Relations Commission

The City of York Human Relations Commission (CYHRC) is a civil rights organization that enforces Article 185 of the Codified Ordinances of the City of York, PA. The Commission does intake and takes complaints of discrimination in the areas of employment, housing and public accommodations.

In addition, the Commission acts to monitor bias situations and hate crimes that cause tension in the community. The Commission engages in education and outreach activities throughout the community. Upon request, CYHRC will present workshops and seminars for faith communities, schools, community groups, employers, landlords, tenants and individuals.

The CYHRC convenes the York County Inter-Agency Task Force on Civil Tension, which monitors and addresses issues of bias and tension throughout York County.

The CYHRC is a member of the Pennsylvania Inter-Agency Task force on Civil Tension and works closely with the Pennsylvania Office of the Attorney General - Civil Rights Division, the Heritage Affairs Office of the Pennsylvania State Police and the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission. CYHRC also has a good working relationship with the U.S. Department of Justice, Community Relations Program.
