The Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities is responsible for deepening the appreciation of South Africans for the wide array of cultures, religions and languages found in the country, and for contributing meaningfully and constructively to social transformation and nation-building for the attainment of a truly united South African nation.

The Commission was established to fulfil the following objectives: promote and develop peace, friendship, humanity, tolerance and national unity amongst and within cultural, religious and linguistic communities on the basis of equity, non-discrimination and free association; foster mutual respect amongst cultural, religious and linguistic communities; promote the right of communities to develop their historically diminished heritage; promote respect for and further the protection of the rights of cultural, religious and linguistic communities; and recommend the establishment or recognition of community councils.
