The Illinois Department of Human Rights


Welcome to the website of the Illinois Department of Human Rights.  I hope that you find it helpful. 

Collectively, our Agency has a very clear goal in mind—to make the Department a fairer, more responsive and more professional organization. 

And, most importantly, to treat all those who look to our agency for assistance with dignity and respect. We are working hard to achieve that goal every day. 

I hope that if you feel you have been discriminated against or if you are responding to a charge of discrimination, you will find our office knowledgeable, timely and informative. 

Our website includes forms, instructions and links to numerous other related websites as well as detailed information on how the discrimination charge process works.  In addition, you may contact one of our offices throughout Illinois:
