Airbnb has selected former Attorney General Eric Holder to help “craft a world-class anti-discrimination policy,” according to a blog post posted on the company’s website.

CEO Brian Chesky announced the hire.

“I’m looking forward to working with Airbnb to develop and implement a world-class anti-discrimination policy,” the former U.S. attorney general said in a statement. “Airbnb is committed to building a community where everyone can belong, no matter who they are or what they look like. I’m eager to help them craft policies that will be the model for companies who share Airbnb’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.”

The move is in response to claims of racial discrimination filed by African Americans. In June, the company announced its plan to help prevent discrimination from hosts against guests. Airbnb made headlines after guests expressed complaints of racial discrimination while trying to rent through the service.
