Civil and Human Rights
The Des Moines Civil & Human Rights Commission enforces illegal discrimination laws in the City of Des Moines. We believe in equality with respect and justice for all.
We work to advance justice, promote equality and ensure the protection of human rights for all people in Des Moines through education, advocacy, community engagement and investigations of civil rights violations.
Our goal is to make Des Moines a leading example of protecting human rights and equality for all, with a culture of inclusiveness, respect and peace.
Breaking Bread, Building Bridges
Winner of the 2020 Upper Midwest Board of Governors Emmy® Award
The Breaking Bread, Building Bridges project was conceived to see what happens when people take the time to converse with one another despite their differences over one commonality all human beings share, the need to eat.
