Note:  As of July 1, 2013, the Disability Advisory Commission (DAC) and the Human Rights Commission (HRC) have been combined into the Human Services Commission. 

Commission Duties
The Human Services Commission (formerly the Human Rights Commission) was established to implement the San José Human Rights Policy and to develop programs promoting the fulfillment of human rights in the City. The commission studies, reviews, evaluates and makes recommendations to the City Council relative to all matters affecting human rights including discrimination, equal employment opportunity policies and practices, and recommends courses of action regarding the City’s equal opportunity and equal access efforts and its programs relating to City employment.

The City Council is the final decision-making body and the Human Services Commission acts in an advisory capacity to the Council and works with staff members of the City Manager’s Office.

The commission meets on the third Thursday of the month at 6:00 p.m., City Hall, W-120. On average, commissioners spend five hours a month attending monthly meetings and an additional seven hours per month on commission business.
