How Does the Division Find Out About Possible Civil Rights Violations?
There are many ways that the Division learns about potential civil rights violations. Each year, it receives thousands of letters, emails and phone calls from individuals, public officials and organizations about potential civil rights violations. In addition, other government agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Department of Labor (DOL), Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Navajo Nation Human Rights Commission send the Division information about potential civil rights violations. The Division also uses publicly available information from newspapers, television and other media to learn about potential civil rights violations.
