Our Mission

The Human Rights Commission was created in October 2005 to foster good relationships among communities and groups of people in Sullivan County.  We all have a shared purpose, to make Sullivan County the best possible place to live regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, creed, gender, age, disability, actual or perceived sexual orientation/preference, marital status or a criminal conviction only to the extent provided by Correction Law 752.


Our Purpose

  • To foster mutual respect and understanding in the general population for the rights of all persons in Sullivan County.
  • To encourage equality of treatment for, and discourage discrimination against, a person on the basis of race, creed, color, religion or national origin, gender, age, disability, actual or perceived sexual orientation/preference, marital status, or criminal conviction to the extent provided by Correction Law  §752.
  • To inquire into incidents of tension and conflict among or between various racial, religious, and nationality groups, and to act and relieve such tensions.
  • To conduct and recommend programs of education to increase good will among the inhabitants of Sullivan County.
  • To receive complaints of alleged discrimination on the basis of race, creed, color, religion or national origin, gender, age, disability, actual or perceived sexual orientation/preference, marital status, or criminal conviction to the extent provided by Correction Law  §752, and attempt to resolve such conflicts through intervention or referral.
