The Equal Rights Commission is a group of diverse and invested city residents who advocate and celebrate Milwaukee’s diversity – while also working to eliminate all forms of bias and discrimination. Known as Commissioners, these members are official city officers appointed by the Mayor and charged with advancing the efforts and mission of the City and the Commission.
This vital work must happen in every neighborhood and reach to all of Milwaukee’s diverse communities, ages, and backgrounds. In order to move Milwaukee forward, together we must continue to fight for our vision as a welcoming, affirming, and inclusive city for all.

The Equal Rights Commission’s priority activities include:
- Fairly investigate discrimination complaints
- Provide resources and information to help Milwaukeeans combat discrimination together
- Collaborate with city departments to promote the goals of the Equal Rights Commission
Commissioners are expected to attend bi-monthly commission meetings, participate in at least one monthly board committee meeting, and to represent the interests of the City of Milwaukee
