Mission of the Decorah Human Rights Commission

To increase community awareness and appreciation of human diversity through educational programs and to investigate alleged claims of discriminatory practices and provide appropriate remedies where discrimination has been found to exist.

The Commission was formed pursuant to a Civil Rights ordinance (City Code Section 2.50) passed in Decorah in 2005. The 7 member Commission formed in 2006 investigates complaints in the areas of education, housing, public accommodations, employment and credit.



The Commission also advocates for diversity education and awareness in the community.
