The Tacoma City Council is looking to fill five positions on the Human Rights Commission. Applications must be submitted to the City Clerk’s Office by Thursday, January 5, 2023.


The Human Rights Commission is comprised of fifteen members serving three-year terms as representatives of the general public and the employer, labor, religious, racial, ethnic, disabled, and women's groups in the city.

For these vacancies, Black and Indigenous community members, people of color, LGBTQ individuals, individuals with disabilities, seniors, immigrants, and refugees are especially encouraged to apply.
