Introducing the Civil Rights Reporter

By Debra Mayes

April 19, 2013

Mike DeWine, Ohio Attorney General announces the first issue of the Civil Rights Reporter, an Ohio Attorney General’s Office newsletter aimed at raising awareness of Ohio’s laws against discrimination as well as important civil rights issues and cases

The newsletter will be sent twice a year, and we encourage you to forward it to others who may find the information valuable. 

Appropriately, this first issue coincides with National Fair Housing Month, an observance that has occurred annually since April 1969, the first anniversary of Congress’ passage of the Fair Housing Act. The act prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, and financing of housing based on race, religion, national origin, and (as amended) sex, handicap, and family status. In fact, as you will read in a Q&A with Attorney General Mike DeWine in this issue, the attorney general led efforts to add family status to the act when he served in the U.S. House of Representatives.  For more click here.
