About Human Relations Commission
The York City Human Relations Commission (YCHRC) 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, YCHRC will present workshops and seminars for faith communities, schools, community groups, employers, landlords, tenants and individuals.
The YCHRC is a Fair Housing Assistance Program provider (FHAP) for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). As such, all housing complaints to HUD are referred to YCHRC for processing, if they are located within our jurisdiction in the City of York.
The YCHRC convenes the York County Inter-Agency Task Force on Civil Tension, which monitors and addresses issues of bias and tension throughout York County.
The YCHC 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. YCHRC also has a good working relationship with the U.S. Department of Justice, Community Relations Program.
