Enforcing religious freedom in prison by United States Commission on Civil Rights( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 873 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Executive summary: This report focuses on the government's efforts to enforce federal civil rights laws prohibiting religious discrimination in the administration and management of federal and state prisons. Prisoners in federal and state institutions retain certain religious exercise rights under the Constitution and statutes including the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUPIPA), the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), and the Civil rights of Institutionalized Persons Act (CRIPA). Many states have similar provisions in their state constitutions and in state law modeled on RFRA. These rights must be balanced with the legitimate concerns of prisons officials, including cost, staffing, and most importantly, prison safety and security. Reconciling these rights and concerns can be a significant challenge for penal institutions, as well as courts

3 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 781 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The major portion of this report is devoted to the Anglo and American Indian testimony from the 1973 Commission on Civil Rights Hearings on Navajo economic development, employment, education, and health care. Among the major recommendations cited are those calling for: (1) legal recognition of the Navajo Tribal Council to provide for favorable tax classification and Federal Agency grant and loan qualification; (2) a system by which the Tribal Council could make decisions with greater independence from the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA); (3) legislation to support program development until tribal revenues are adequate to maintain both infrastructure and development investments; (4) a program to provide superior technical expertise in planning and decision making; (5) a Department of the Interior policy providing for joint enterprises on a 50/50 (tribal and contractor) basis; (6) Federal augmentation of the Navajo Revolving Credit Fund; (7) BIA enforcement of the Navajo preference policy in Federal employment; (8) creation of a tribal agency with jurisdiction over employment discrimination complaints; (9) full Navajo representation in the educational decision making process; (10) curriculum development to include Navajo cultural awareness; (11) elimination of the Navajo teacher shortage; and (12) appropriation of funds for the Indian Health Service to make Navajo health care comparable to that of the U.S. in general.

Becoming less separate? : school desegregation, Justice Department enforcement, and the pursuit of unitary status by United States Commission on Civil Rights( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this report is to examine what effect the increase in the number of schools obtaining unitary status has had on the racial balance of schools that were previously under court order. Specifically, the report examines whether levels of integration tend to erode as consent decrees are lifted. To that end, the Commission collected data as to the legal status of school districts in seven states: Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, and South Carolina. The Commission then analyzed this data to determine if obtaining unitary status was associated with greater levels of racial clustering or reduced integration within districts. In addition, the Commission examined the Educational Opportunities Section (EOS) of the Department of Justice, which is charged with the primary enforcement role in this area to determine what effect its policies and actions have had on the racial balance of school districts. The findings indicate that the increase in the number of jurisdictions obtaining unitary status has not had a negative effect on levels of integration. Moreover, the evidence indicates that the substantial number of districts that have obtained unitary status since 2000, at least partly through the actions of EOS, exhibit higher levels of integration than those districts that obtained such status in prior decades. The report also indicates that certain factors, unrelated to the legal status of a school district, have a more significant effect on levels of racial balance. Among these are the size of a district's student population, the percentage of white student enrollment, and the state in which the district is located. The Commission urges that these factors be further examined and that school districts and the communities of which they are a part take the steps necessary to address the vestiges of state based discrimination. Appended are: (1) Methodological Issues and Detailed Statistical Results; (2) Alabama Public Schools' Desegregation Status; (3) Florida Public Schools' Desegregation Status; (4) Georgia Public Schools' Desegregation Status; (5) Louisiana Public Schools' Desegregation Status; (6) Mississippi Public Schools' Desegregation Status; (7) North Carolina Public Schools' Desegregation Status; and (8) South Carolina Public Schools' Desegregation Status. Individual chapters contain footnotes. (Contains 4 figures and 53 tables.)

Toward an understanding of Bakke( Book )

3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 736 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The complete text of the Bakke decision and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's voluntary affirmative action guidelines are presented. Also included are: Statement by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights on Affirmative Action; Presidential Memorandum on Affirmative Action Programs; and the United States Commission on Civil Rights Statement on Affirmative Action. These documents outline national policy with respect to affirmative action in education and employment. An introductory statement explains the diverse opinions of the Supreme Court that permit institutions of higher education to use race and national origin affirmatively in certain settings and in certain ways. Despite confusion, it is suggested that the decision is consistent with continuing federal efforts to encourage affirmative measures to overcome race, national origin, and sex discrimination. The first definitive statement by the executive branch on voluntary affirmative action in employment elaborates on these federal efforts. The guidelines of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission offer a unified and comprehensive perspective on the lawfulness of voluntary affirmative action
Federal Title VI enforcement to ensure nondiscrimination in federally assisted programs : a report of the U.S Commission on Civil Rights by United States Commission on Civil Rights( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights conducted a comprehensive evaluation and analysis of the leadership of the Department of Justice in its Title vi programs and of the Title vi enforcement efforts of 10 Federal agencies and 10 subagencies, including the Department of Education. The purpose of Title vi is to eliminate illegal discrimination in programs or activities funded by the Federal Government. Title vi prohibits a broad range of discriminatory activities and practices. The government's de-emphasizing of civil rights implementation, enforcement, and compliance activities, recent court decisions, and a lessening of Federal interest in state civil rights programs have resulted in deficiencies in Title vi enforcement. The Civil Rights Commission reexamined agency and subagency efforts in light of these policy changes. It is concluded that Federal Title vi enforcement programs at the Department of Justice and other agencies have extensive deficiencies. With the exception of the Department of Education, none of the agencies responsible for enforcing Title vi has an effective enforcement program. Nor do Federal agencies have the resources or personnel to examine the operations of state and local agencies that administer Federal funds to determine their level of Title vi enforcement. Numerous and detailed recommendations are made for ensure meaningful, uniform, and comprehensive enforcement of Title vi of the Civil Rights Act. (Contains 16 tables.) (Sld)
