Chesterfield, Hanover and Henrico Counties are committed to listening, discussing and sharing ideas that build community collaboration and trust and work toward solutions that overcome barriers and injustice for all. Part of that commitment is helping people to know their rights.
Federal laws protect individuals from discrimination or harassment based on sex, race, age, disability, color, creed, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion and genetic information. Numerous institutions, many of which operate regionally in our area, carry a mission to educate people about the laws that protect them, advocate for people’s rights, and legally challenge instances of discrimination. This web page is dedicated to assembling those many resources in one space to further that education and help people connect with those resources as we work together to recognize and break the many forms and cycles of discrimination.
At this regional website you will find information and resources to protect and inform you of your rights and help you find solutions to overcome barriers and injustices.
If you believe you have been discriminated against in your efforts to obtain housing, employment and/or public accommodation please contact the agencies that are listed in each respective category. These national, state and regional resources are to be of assistance and specialize in areas of discrimination.
Hanover County is committed to the values of Integrity, Accountability, Respect and Inclusiveness with a vision to be a premier community for people and businesses to achieve their full potential. Our County strives to foster of a strong sense of community to encourage collaboration and connection.
