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

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,115 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

Toward an understanding of Bakke by United States Commission on Civil Rights( Book )

6 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 760 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

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

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 730 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.)

"In October, 1972, the jurisdiction of the Commission was expanded by the Congress to include sex discrimination. Throughout its history, the Commission has sought to appraise Federal laws and policies from the point of view of denial of equal protection under the law. Our report analyzes the impact that a constitutional amendment designed to nullify the Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States on the right to limit childbearing would have on the First, Ninth and Fourteenth Amendments to the Constitution"--Letter of transmission, page i
