PHILADELPHIA, July 10, 2014 – The Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations will relocate its operations and staff from its North Philadelphia branch to its Center City headquarters, effective July 18.
The PCHR branch had operated in the basement of the Lillian Marrero branch library at 601 W. Lehigh Ave. The Free Library of Philadelphia has plans to renovate the branch in the future.
“This is a matter of effective streamlining and bringing all our resources under one roof, not abandoning our commitment or service to the community,” said Rue Landau, PCHR executive director. “We’ll be as present and available as ever, if not more so, as a result of this move.”
All PCHR operations will be consolidated at its offices at the Curtis Building, 601 Walnut St., Suite 300.
PCHR will continue to accept all intake and others seeking information and help as it relates to enforcement of and education about the city’s civil rights laws and resolving intergroup conflicts.
