3. What are C.I.T.Y.'s policies about non-discrimination?

SUBJECT: Equal Opportunity and Non-Discrimination - Policy #3

PURPOSE: To establish the Equal opportunity and non-discrimination policy for C.I.T.Y. members and those that C.I.T.Y. supports or works with.
POLICY: C.I.T.Y. provides equal opportunity for all qualified persons in its educational, spiritual, recreational and social programs and activities. It also seeks to be an organization in which freedom of expression and vigorous debate are valued and provided to all its members free of all forms of discrimination or harassment, including but not limited to exploitation, coercion, and intimidation. To achieve these goals, C.I.T.Y. has adopted a policy prohibiting discrimination and discriminatory harassment on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, disability, and any other bases under federal or local laws. The policy of non-discrimination and equal opportunity applies to every aspect of the operations and activities of the C.I.T.Y., including partnership with other organizations and contracting for services with for-profit organizations.
Non-discrimination and equal opportunity are not just matters of C.I.T.Y. policy; they are also matters of law. Discrimination and discriminatory harassment is a violation of federal, local law, or both. Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the D.C. Human Rights Act prohibit discrimination in employment and in general.
