About Us

The Office of Equity and Civil Rights is a city agency devoted to advancing equity and upholding the federal and local civil rights laws, the local living and prevailing wage laws, and providing oversight of local law enforcement.  The mission of the Office of Equity and Civil Rights is to carry out activities to eliminate inequity, inequality, and discrimination.

There are two divisions in the Office: the Equity Division which works to advance equity in the City of Baltimore, and the Civil Rights Division, which consists of the Civilian Review Board, the Community Relations Commission, the Mayor's Commission on Disabilities and the Wage Commission.
