Have you been a victim of Discrimination?
May 17, 2018
If you have been the victim of discrimination, but aren't quite sure where to turn? Now you have the option to file a complaint or just ask questions, in your own community at a place you know and trust.
Beginning on May 21, 2018, the Michigan Department of Civil Rights staff will be on-site at the Telegram Newspaper Building in River Rouge. Through a partnership with the Western Wayne County Branch of the NAACP, this pilot program will run from May through December and will take place on the third Monday of each month.
The Michigan Department of Civil Rights Commission investigates alleged discrimination against any person because of religion, race, color, national origin, sex, age, marital status, height, weight, arrest record, and physical and mental disabilities and to "secure the equal protection of such civil rights without such discrimination".
If you think you have been discriminated against, but you would like to talk to someone then stop in at the MDCR Satellite Office – Western Wayne NAACP/Telegram Newspaper Building 10748 W. Jefferson Ave. in River Rouge between the hours of 10:00am to 3:00pm every third Monday of the month. Walk-Ins are welcome.
If you are unable to attend on Mondays, call 1-800-482-3604 or visit the website http://www.michigan.gov/mdcr.
