Civil rights law is both simple and complex.
Unfortunately making it hard is easy, the trick is to make it simple.
Do you know the answers to these questions?
1. Can a Federal grant recipient be sued by an individual who claims that there is an adverse impact in the delivery of grant services?
2. Does the Attorney prepare an annual report card on how well Federal agencies are doing in enforcing prohibitions against discrimination applicable to their grantees.
3. Are contractors and subcontractors hired by recipients to carry out Federally assisted programs covered by prohibitions against discrimination applicable to recipients of Federal grants concerning discrimination in the provision of services?
If you are a Federal grant recipient, a state or local government, or an interested organization, you need to know the answers to these questions and more. Click here for the answers.
I can provide you with a one, two, or three day training course that sets out your rights and responsibilities under relevant civil rights statutes, regulations, and Executive Orders.
This training is based on the simple premise first put forth by President Kennedy almost a half century ago when he said:
Simple justice requires that public funds, to which all taxpayers
of all races [colors, and national origins] contribute,
not be spent in any fashion which encourages, entrenches, subsidizes or
results in racial [color or national origin] discrimination.
This same principle applies to gender as well.

I worked for the Coordination and Review Section and its predecessors in the Civil Rights Division for over 20 years and helped establish its civil rights training program for recipients of federal grants and for civil rights officers of other federal agencies that provide federal financial assistance. To see the kind of training I helped develop and give, go to http://www.usdoj.gov/crt/cor/coord/train.php. The training courses I helped give trained over 4000 people. Over 98% of the students rated the courses OUTSTANDING or EXCELLENT. The courses never received even one unsatisfactory rating.
