Following September 11, 2001:
-Has your child been harassed by other students, teachers, or administrators because of his or her race, national origin or religion?
-Have you been fired from your job or harassed at work because of your race, national origin, religion or citizenship status?
-Have you faced discrimination in boarding a plane or during a flight because of your race, national origin or religion?
-Have you, a member of your family, or your property been physically attacked because of your race, national origin or religion?
Since September 11, 2001, Arab, Muslim, South Asian and Sikh Americans, and others perceived to be members of these groups have experienced incidents of discrimination, including assaults, harassment and vandalism.
Please join staff from the Civil Rights Division and Community Relations Service of the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the U.S. Department of Education, and the U.S. Department of Transportation for a discussion about your rights and how to file a discrimination complaint with the appropriate agency. A question and answer period will follow agency presentations. Materials will be available, and staff will be present to receive complaints.
