Home » Human Rights and Equity » About
On March 20th, 2019, Mayor LaToya Cantrell created the Office of Human Rights & Equity (OHRE) to house the City’s Equity Office and the Human Rights Commission as well as serve as a liaison to many of New Orleans' most underrepresented communities and to 'ensure that underrepresented residents have a voice in City Hall' " Kahlida Lloyd serves as the Director of OHRE, serving as the City's Equity Director and also as Executive Director of the Human Rights Commission
The Office of Human Rights and Equity works to promote and protect human rights and advocate for equity in local government.
Human Rights Commission
OHRE participated in the United Nation's Universal Periodic Review (UPR) by submitting the first report on behalf of the City of New Orleans. We engaged community stakeholders, advocates, and other City departments to identify and report human rights priorities and best practices. If you are interested in the report, you can read it here.
This guide can be a tool and an evolving resource for every department as they embark on the analysis and design of their systems with an equity lens. We see this as a living document - one that will be adjusted as we experience the successes and difficulties of utilization.
