Civil Rights

Clackamas County is committed to the principles of non-discrimination, civil rights and equal opportunity. They are foundational in its business practices. Evidence of our commitment can be seen in the following compliance plans.

Equal Employment Opportunity Plan (EEOP)
Equal employment opportunity (EEO) means freedom from discrimination on the basis of protected classes such as race, color, religion, national origin, age, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, veteran status, or any other characteristic protected under federal or state law.

Title II ADA Transition Plan
To prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability, the Federal government enacted the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). Title II of the ADA pertains to state and local governments and requires that persons with disabilities be provided with an equal opportunity to benefit from government programs, services and activities.

Title VI Compliance Plan
Title VI prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, and national origin in programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance.
