With a concentration on Title VI of the Civil Rights Act and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities (ADA) Act, the Civil Rights Program is designed to remove barriers and conditions that prevent underserved groups from accessing programs and services.
In July, 2014, the Program moved to the Office of Equity and Human Rights from the Office of Management and Finance. The move provides the opportunity to be more visible and accessible to the community and City.
The Program focuses on identifying and eliminating barriers using an equity lens through institutionalized mitigation efforts, as well as prioritizing and promoting equity strategies in City policies, plans, programs, practices, services, and operations.
You can find information below about the Civil Rights Title VI and ADA Title II programs. If you have any questions about the program you can contact Danielle Brooks, Civil Rights Title VI and Equity Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org, Nickole Cheron, ADA Title II and Disability Equity Manager at email@example.com, or call the Civil Rights Information Line at 503-823-2559.

All Portlanders are entitled to have equal access to the services, benefits and programs of the City of Portland. The City will make every effort to ensure nondiscrimination in all of its programs activities.
The Title II of the ADA prohibits all state and local governments from discriminating on the basis of disability, but moreover, its goal is to promote equal access and full participation.
