Welcome to the New Hampshire Commission for Human Rights web site.

We are a state agency established by RSA 354-A for the purpose of eliminating discrimination in employment, public accommodations and the sale or rental of housing or commercial property, because of age, sex, sexual orientation, race, creed, color, marital status, familial status, physical or mental disability or national origin. The commission has the power to receive, investigate and pass upon complaints of illegal discrimination and to engage in research and education designed to promote good will and prevent discrimination.

Employment, housing and public accommodation discrimination is against the law in New Hampshire.

  • Blood Drive February 20, Manchester Red Cross HQ to “restore and honor” transfusions received by Bill Brennan during his illness.  I believe you can call and make an appointment.  If you can’t get to Manchester and still want to donate, you can call
  • 1-800-RED CROSS and donate at a donor site near you and ask if it could be counted toward the Brennan organized blood drive.
