Welcome to the Bethlehem
Human Relations Commission!
The Bethlehem Human Relations Commission (BHRC) was created in 2011 to ensure that all persons, regardless of actual or perceived race, color, sex, religion, ancestry, genetic information, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity or expressing, familial status, marital status, age, mental or physical disability, use of guide or support animals and/or mechanical aids enjoy the full benefits of citizenship and are afforded equal opportunities for employment, housing and the use of public accommodations, and have equal access to post-secondary educational institutions.
The BHRC is a volunteer commission that investigates allegations of discrimination within the City of Bethlehem. For more information on filing a complaint or example of unlawful discrimination, please visit the “File a Complaint” and “Resources” tabs at the top of the page.
The BHRC meets on the fourth Wednesday of every month at 6 pm in Room A504 of Bethlehem City Hall (10 East Church Street, Bethlehem, PA 18018). Meetings are open to the public. Please note that all attendees should enter City Hall through the Police Department in the garage level.
