Human Rights Commission

About the Commission

The Human Rights Commission created by the Fairfax County Board of  Supervisors consists of 12 county residents. The 12 member board has one representative for each Supervisor's District. Each member serves a three-year term. Three positions are appointed by the Chairman of the  Board of Supervisors. Annually the Commissioners elect a Chairperson,  a Vice-Chairperson, and a Secretary as officers of the Commission.

The Commission takes the approach of not only receiving and investigating complaints alleging a violation of the Human Rights Ordinance, but also of cooperating with the employers, the housing industry and other businesses in the County to make sure we all understand our duty to ensure equal opportunity and equal access.
