The Seattle Office for Civil Rights staffs four commissions:

The commissions operate as volunteer advisory bodies to the Mayor and City Council on relevant issues and concerns. Members are appointed by the Mayor, City Council and the commissions themselves.

Although SOCR provides staff support, the Commissions operate independently from the Department.

This material as well as reasonable accommodations for meetings and events are available on request for people with disabilities. Call 206-684-4500 for more information.
