Under the charter for the SAC, the purpose is to provide advice and recommendations to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights (Commission) on a broad range of civil rights matters in its respective state that pertain to alleged deprivations of voting rights or discrimination or denials of equal protection of the laws because of race, color, religion, sex, age, disability, or national origin, or the administration of justice. SACs also provide assistance to the Commission in its statutory obligation to serve as a national clearinghouse for civil rights information.

To be eligible to be on a SAC, applicants must be residents of Hawaii and have demonstrated expertise or interest in civil rights issues.

  • Investigate complaints from citizens that their voting rights are being deprived,
  • Study and collect information about discrimination or denials of equal protection under the law,
  • Appraise federal civil rights laws and policies,
  • Serve as a national clearinghouse on discrimination laws,
  • Submit reports and findings and recommendations to the President and the Congress, and
