Kentucky Commission on Human Rights

Kentucky Commission on Human Rights


The Commission was created in 1960 as an administrative body attached to the Governor's Office, with its eleven members appointed by the Governor for three-year terms (KRS 344.150). In 1994 it was authorized to maintain an office in Louisville, rather than Frankfort, and received an appropriation for a Northern Kentucky field office. It continues its original persuasive/educational responsibility, encouraging fair treatment and understanding of minorities through its research, publication of reports, cooperating with public and private organizations to discourage discrimination and making recommendations on eliminating discrimination. The Commission also educates those public and private persons and entities subject to various federal and state civil rights laws and assists them in complying with the law, and serves to inform individuals of their rights under those laws.(LRC Report 171 revised 2002)
