SF/HRC Official Meetings—the Basics:

Regular Bi-Monthly SF/HRC Meetings:

Join us at a bimonthly San Francisco Human Rights Commission Meeting! Most meetings are in San Francisco’s City Hall, Room 410, on the second and fourth Thursday, beginning at 6.30pm. July and August meetings are only on the second Thursday.

About four times annually, the SF/HRC meets in one of San Francisco’s vibrant neighborhoods, at various community spaces. Please visit SF/HRC’s website for the most accurate meeting location and time, and the latest agendas and minutes.

SF/HRC Community Advisory Council Meetings:

You are very welcome to participate in monthly SF/HRC advisory council meetings. The San Francisco Human Rights Commission depends on the energy, creativity, and expertise of regular San Franciscans who participate in its Equity Advisory Council and LGBT Advisory Council. Indeed, it is from these pioneering groups that SF/HRC developed or helped shape some of the most innovative civil rights policies in the Bay Area and nationally.

The EAC generally meets at SF/HRC’s offices, 25 Van Ness Avenue, 8th Floor, on the second Wednesday of each month at 5.30pm. For the most accurate meeting click here.

The LGBTC generally meets at SF/HRC’s offices, 25 Van Ness Avenue, 8th Floor, on the third Tuesday of each month at 5.30pm. For the most accurate meeting click here.
