Civil Rights

Cr Ag Js Lg

As the Commonwealth’s chief law enforcement officer, I protect the rights of all Pennsylvanians – no matter what they look like, who they love, or who they pray – or don’t pray – to.

In order to defend those rights, the Office of Attorney General works closely with federal, state, and local civil rights agencies to ensure that Pennsylvanians are free from discrimination in employment, housing, public accommodations, education, the workplace and other settings. The Office also has jurisdiction to seek civil injunctions or other equitable relief to protect against ethnic intimidation (hate crimes).

If you believe your civil rights have been violated, please reach out to the Office of Attorney General’s Civil Rights Enforcement Section to file a complaint.
