||The LAD created the Commission on Civil Rights to “consult with and advise the Attorney General with respect to the work” of the Division on Civil Rights. The LAD states that the Commission shall “report to the Governor and the Legislature with respect to such matters relating to the work of the [DCR] and at such times as it may deem in the public interest.” The Commission is comprised of seven members who are appointed by the Governor with the advice and consent of the Senate. Each serves a 5-year term and is not compensated for his or her service. The Commission meets regularly with the DCR Director and the Division’s chief counsel so members can be kept apprised of agency initiatives. Individual Commissioners also support DCR events, such as community roundtables and conferences, and serve as liaisons to various communities including public and private entities committed to eradicating discrimination and fostering public awareness of compliance to civil rights laws.
