The USCCR was created by the Civil Rights Act of 1957 as an independent, bi-partisan federal agency whose mission is to inform the development of national civil rights policy and enhance the enforcement of federal civil rights laws. The USCCR is composed of eight commissioners, half of whom are appointed by the President and half of whom are appointed by Congress. Fifty-one State Advisory Committees (representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia) are made up of citizen volunteers who are appointed by the commissioners to assist with factfinding, investigation and information sharing.
