invite you to browse through our website so you can become more
familiar with one of the most rigorous civil rights laws in the
nation, the New York City Human Rights Law. The Law protects New
Yorkers from discrimination in employment, housing and public accommodations.
As a career prosecutor and a child of the south who grew up during
the civil rights era, I know first hand the importance of fighting
discrimination. Discrimination has no place in this City. Both Mayor
Bloomberg and I are committed to the vigorous enforcement of the
Law that protects these rights. That same commitment also extends
to fostering racial and ethnic harmony among diverse communities.
I look forward to serving you as Commissioner, advocating Human
Rights on behalf of the people of the City of New York
