Like there’s nothing better to spend our great-grandchildren’s money on?
The Office of Special Counsel for Immigration Related Unfair Employment Practices (OSC), a section of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, announced the availability of funds for public education programs regarding employees’ rights and employers’ obligations under the anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). The program is open to public service organizations and others providing information services to employers and/or potential victims of immigration-related employment discrimination. Last year, grants ranging from $40,000 to $100,000 were awarded to 11 organizations serving communities throughout the country.
Last year’s recipients included LULAC, the City of Phoenix Equal Opportunity Department, Colorado Legal Services, the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles, the National Immigration Law Center, and the New York City Human Rights Commission.
