Human Rights Council of North Central Florida

Dedicated to ending discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Our Mission


Founded in 1993, the Human Rights Council of North Central Florida (HRCNCF) works to end discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in the interest of civic betterment and social welfare.  HRCNCF also seeks to work in coalition with other organizations to end discrimination based on race, gender, socioeconomic status, age, religion, national origin, or disability.

Your Hometown Equality Advocate

The Human Rights Council of North Central Florida has been your Hometown Equality Advocate for LGBT rights since 1993 – leading the fight for Alachua County sexual orientation and gender identity protections (2013), Gainesville gender identity protections (2008), domestic partner registry (2007), domestic partner benefits for city employees (1999), and sexual orientation protections (1998).  HRCNCF continues to conduct candidate questionnaires and forums to keep you informed where local candidates stand on LGBT issues.
