The commission has held a number of education and outreach events throughout 2010 to recognize its 50-year mark. The first state human rights commission south of the Mason-Dixon Line was created by the late Gov. Bert T. Combs on March 21, 1960, when he signed its establishment act passed by the Kentucky General Assembly.
The Kentucky Commission on Human Rights is the state government agency that enforces the Kentucky Civil Rights Act and federal civil rights laws, all of which prohibit discrimination.
