The Office of Equity and Human Rights’ Bureau Advisory Committee (BAC) was formed in January 2013 and is comprised of City of Portland staff and members of Portland’s diverse communities. Our office meets with the Bureau Advisory Committee (BAC) to assist with budget review and presentation to City Council. The BAC also advises the work of the bureau on an on-going basis.


Next Committee Meeting:


5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Location: 421 SW 6th Ave. Suite 500 Portland, OR 97204
