Federal Civil Rights Offices

Civil rights protections come from a variety of varying laws at the federal, state, and local levels. The federal laws include the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which prohibits discrimination in various settings and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) which prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in various settings, as well as many other civil rights laws. A number of federal agencies and offices work to protect the civil rights of individuals in a broad range of areas. These offices are often charged with investigating and prosecuting civil rights violations and instances of discrimination.
