Nevada Equal Rights Commission

The mission of the Equal Rights Commission is to foster and protect the rights of all people of the State reasonably to seek, obtain and hold employment and housing, and seek and be granted services in places of public accommodation, without discrimination, distinction or restriction, as prohibited by state and federal discrimination laws. Most data is confidential pursuant to state and federal laws, however the Commission is proud to report publicly data that may be used to assist the public in understanding Nevada’s demographics based on filings with the Commission and U.S. Census.
