The purpose of the Broward County Human Rights Board is to encourage equality of treatment and to prevent discrimination against any racial, religious, ethnic, or other minority group or its members.
Our Mission Statement: The Human Rights Board champions the rights of those who might otherwise be denied their civil liberties and seeks to promote respect and further cultural, economic and social understanding through education, information and the advisement on matters coming before the board.
The Human Rights Board meets quarterly on the second Monday in January, April, July, and October, 4:00 P.M., Broward County Governmental Center, Room 301. Any changes in the noticed meetings will be posted in compliance with Florida's Sunshine Law.
