The DESJ was created to address a series of concerns brought forth by members of the public during Special Hearings on Immigration, Women, Hate Crimes, and Climate hearings in December 2016 and January 2017. The County has a commitment to our community which this Division attempts to address through the lens of equity and social justice issues, especially within the most marginalized communities.

The County of Santa Clara Division of Equity and Social Justice is comprised of seven different offices within the Office of the County Executive. These Offices include:

  • Office of Women's Policy

  • Office of Gender Based Violence Prevention

  • Office of Cultural Competency

  • Office of Immigrant Relations

  • Office of Labor Standards and Enforcement

  • Office of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) Affairs
