Protecting Those Who Cannot Protect Themselves

​The Human Rights Authority (HRA) within the Guardianship and Advocacy Commission serves as a statewide framework to provide direction and standards with mostly volunteer efforts for investigating complaints of violations to those with disabilities. In reviewing the regional service boundaries, the HRA instituted a more responsive program and rebalanced regional caseloads. Additionally, the HRA established a SharePoint website so that appointed HRA members can access confidential case and meeting information in a timely manner and without violating the Open Meetings Act, while also reducing postage costs.
