This article undertakes an inquiry into the future direction of the New York City Human Rights Commission. In particular, the author imagines two future aims of the Commission, remedying past instances of discrimination and preventing future harm, and advocates a model that proposes a proper balance between the resources allocated to each goal. The author advocates for an expansion of the Commission's focus on preventative measures to deter discrimination by incentivizing employers to adopt precautionary measures, while narrowing remedial focus on guilty individuals.
