Report Discrimination

The New York State Division of Human Rights is empowered by the law to, upon its own motion, initiate investigations and file complaints alleging violations of the state anti-discrimination law.

As such, the Division Initiated Action Unit (DIAU) is responsible for identifying, investigating, and bringing complaints to remedy large-scale and systemic discrimination in New York State.

You can submit a report for the DIAU to examine by emailing them at [email protected].

Please note that this does not constitute the filing of a verified complaint with the Division.  You may learn about filing a complaint by visiting:
