Education and Training Options
The Des Moines Human Rights Commission has a responsibility set out in its ordinance to provide training regarding discrimination law and issues. We can provide presentations for a wide variety of age groups and focus each presentation on your groups’ specific needs or interests.
All training areas cover issues in relationship to a difference in treatment in the areas of: Age, Race, Color, Creed, Sex, national Origin, Ancestry, Religion, Disability, Sexual Orientation, and Familial Status.
Email Us if you have any questions concerning training.
