About Community Relations

Community Relations is committed to encouraging, supporting and advancing efforts which fulfill human needs and protect civil rights of the Boulder community.

Community Relations encourages interaction based on respect and understanding among the various communities that make up the Boulder population and ensures protection of rights afforded to Boulder residents by the Human Rights Ordinance, Boulder’s local anti-discrimination law. The Office of Human Rights also enforces the city's Failure to Pay Wages ordinance.

Community Relations supports Boulder's Human Relations Commission in fostering mutual respect and understanding and to create an atmosphere conducive to the promotion of amicable relations among all members of the Boulder community and in role as the quasi-judicial body for resolution of Human Rights Ordinance cases.
