OPA: Eradicating discrimination against those living with HIV or AIDS

Eradicating discrimination against those living with HIV or AIDS

 

 

The Department of Justice is proud to play a lead role in eradicating discrimination against those living with HIV or AIDS. The Civil Rights Division has significant enforcement authority over the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Fair Housing Act, and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973—Federal laws that protect individuals with HIV/AIDS from discrimination in employment, state and local government services, places of public accommodation, and housing. 

 

Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights Thomas E. Perez has posted a blog titled Toward AIDS 2012: Fighting Discrimination Against People with HIV/AIDS on the White House Office of National AIDS Policy’s website.  The blog is posted on the Department’s ADA website at http://www.ada.gov/aids/ada_aids_press.htm
