Human and Civil Rights
We promote and enforce laws against discrimination and foster amicable relationships among the diverse populations of Delaware.
The Division of Human and Civil Rights and the State Delaware Human and Civil Rights Commission administer Delaware’s Fair Housing and Equal Accommodations laws. These laws protect you against discrimination in housing and in places that serve the public. The Commission promotes amicable relationships among the State’s various racial, ethnic and cultural groups and works to increase public awareness of civil and human rights in Delaware.
