Civil Rights Pamphlet

Banner reading "Know Your Civil Rights"

 

The Arizona Attorney General's Office (AGO), in partnership with the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), has published a new civil rights pamphlet in English and Spanish available free to Arizonans. The pamphlet provides Arizonans with answers to frequently asked questions regarding their rights and how to file civil rights complaints related to discrimination in employment, housing, public accommodations, and voting.

The Arizona Attorney General’s Civil Rights Division (Division) enforces the Arizona Civil Rights Act (ACRA), which prohibits discrimination in employment, housing, public accommodations, and voting. Part of the Division’s mission is to increase public awareness about the ACRA. The pamphlet provides answers to common and important questions, like:

  • What protected classes are covered in the ACRA?
  • How long do I have to file a charge of discrimination?
  • What happens after I file a charge of discrimination?
  • Do I need to hire a lawyer to file a charge with the Division?
  • What are examples of unlawful discrimination?

Below you can download the AGO’s newly published civil rights pamphlet in English and Spanish.
