Department of Human Relations

Discrimination is illegal. It is against the law to deny employment, housing, education, or public services and accommodation because of a person’s race, color, creed, religion, sex, national origin, ancestry, disability, or familial status. For more than 50 years, the Gary Human Relations Commission has been the local civil rights agency in Northwest Indiana. The anti-discrimination law is enforced by the Gary Human Relations Commission under the City of Gary Civil Rights Ordinance 6754, amended by Ordinance 8967. Like us on Facebook!
