The Human Relations Commission (HRC) consists of five members of the Beverly Hills community appointed by the City Council to advise, recommend, assist and encourage activities and programs to be undertaken to promote positive human relations in all aspects of community life. Click here to meet our current commissioners.
Community Support: The HRC is authorized to receive citizen complaints concerning interactions of city employees with the public. Regarding interactions with the Beverly Hills Police Department, a formal personnel complaint procedure exists for individuals who do not wish to file a complaint directly with BHPD. Please contact Human Services Office at 310-285-1006 to discuss the process to reserve a spot on the commission agenda.
Hate Incident Reporting: The HRC encourages anyone who has experienced a hate incident to contact local law enforcement. In addition, please report to LA County Anti-Hate Hotline at 2-1-1 or online here.

It has become apparent in recent months that our community, our nation, and our world are experiencing a troubling increase in violence and bigotry motivated by hate. This behavior comes in many forms, all equally disturbing and unacceptable. While anti-Semitism, anti-Asian, and anti-Black hate have been the most recently noticeable incidents, no form of prejudicial hate is tolerable in our society.
The Beverly Hills Human Relations Commission stands firmly against hate and bigotry in any form and urges our community to unite and speak out against hate. We invite every member of this community to join us in creating an environment where civility, respect and responsible actions prevail. To strive to become a more equitable and just society, we must try to understand and, most of all, accept all citizens. We implore everyone who resides and visits our city to conduct themselves with the utmost civility, compassion, and respect.
We ask that if you experience or witness an act of hate, please report it to local law enforcement. In addition, contact the L.A. County Anti-Hate Hotline by dialing 2-1-1 or visiting www.211la.org/form/anti-hate.
