Title VI Civil Rights NEws @ FCS Fall 2014

welcome

Dear Colleague,

With this Fall issue of Title VI Civil Rights News @FCS, we bring you an updated format and a wide array of new information. For those new to this service, the Federal Coordination and Compliance Section (FCS) of the Civil Rights Division provides this Newsletter to highlight noteworthy Title VI developments from across the government as part of the Justice Department’s coordination responsibilities under Executive Order 12250 and in commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

This issue includes answers to a number of the frequently asked questions we receive from federal employees and advocates alike. This segment will appear in future issues of the Newsletter, so feel free to provide us with your Title VI questions at FCS.CRT@usdoj.gov. This issue also includes recent agency agreements, findings, settlements, and developments.

Also, we look forward to welcoming Vanita Gupta as the Acting Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division (Press Release: http://go.usa.gov/fKzF). We plan to continue working with Molly Moran as she takes her new position as Deputy Associate Attorney General.

In the words of Attorney General Eric Holder, may your work “always be guided by the pursuit of justice and aimed at the North Star.”
