of illegal discrimination and to assure and foster equal opportunity for all citizens of the City. The LCHR also
provides community education and assistance in order for people to know and understand their rights and
responsibilities under the law. The Lincoln Commission on Human Rights (LCHR) is open 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.,
Monday through Friday. There is no charge for our services. Initially, a staff person will speak with you about
your situation. Keep in mind that we only handle discriminatory matters due to race, color, sex, religion,
national origin, age (over 40), disability, marital status, familial status or retaliation, which has presumably
occurred at your place of employment, your housing, or public accommodation.
