We believe in equality with respect and justice for all. The Des Moines Civil & Human Rights Commission is a city government department that enforces illegal discrimination laws in the City of Des Moines.

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.
