Feb 11, 2020 Luxury fashion brand Prada recently signed a settlement with the New York City Commission on Human Rights (NYCCHR) that will reportedly cost them millions to implement. The NYCCHR is an enforcement agency of New York City Government, whose role is to oversee human rights laws and foster compliance with them.
