  • Who to contact for ADA & Civil Rights Issues

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, Nickole Cheron, ADA Title II and Disability Equity Manager at, or call the Civil Rights Information Line at 503-823-2559.
