U.S. Dept. of Justice Civil Rights Division
[NO AFFILIATION WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE]
The Civil Rights Division was founded in 1957, and enforces a number of the nation's civil rights law, especially against state and local governments. In particular, its litigating components enforce laws that prohibit discrimination in education, employment, credit, housing, public accommodations and facilities, voting, and certain federally funded and conducted programs. In addition, the Division enforces the Civil Rights of Institutionalized Persons Act of 1980, which authorizes the Attorney General to seek relief for persons confined in public institutions where conditions exist that deprive residents of their constitutional rights; the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act; the Police Misconduct Provision of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994; and Section 102 of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA), as amended, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of national origin and citizenship status as well as document abuse and retaliation under the Immigration and Nationality Act. Finally, the Division prosecutes actions under several criminal civil rights statutes which were designed to preserve personal liberties and safety.

The Division is responsible for coordinating the civil rights enforcement efforts of federal agencies, and assists federal agencies in identifying and removing discriminatory provision in their policies and programs.
