Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The Human Rights/Fair Housing Commission is dedicated to eradicating all forms of discrimination. In order to promote tolerance, peace and tranquility for residents in our culturally rich and diverse community, the Human Rights/Fair Housing Commission will provide:
easy access to counseling, investigation and mediation of disputes which may arise from acts of racism, sexism, hate crimes, homophobia, disability or housing discrimination; and violation of human rights;
outreach and special programs to educate the community on issues affecting their rights under federal, state and local laws;
prompt and thorough investigation and mediation of complaints filed with the Commission regarding a violation of a Sacramento County resident's legal or human rights.
Human Rights/Fair Housing was founded in 1963. Originally we offered low income individuals information about their rental housing rights. In time, we expanded our scope of services to include housing discrimination, employment discrimination, habitability and hate crimes. Our staff is dedicated to better educating the public about their rights and resources available in our community.
