Protected Classes

January 10 – 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
City of Madison Department of Civil Rights

Closing the enforcement gap between “Employment, Housing and Public Accommodation’s” discrimination, for a City of any size, while trying to break down silos with community organizations is a challenge for any Municipality. As a government agency, it is difficult to build trust throughout all identities within a community. Having protected classes can increase public awareness while balancing discrimination law and one’s individual v. Civil/Human Rights. The City of Madison has 28 protected classes, the most extensive in our country today. A Protected Class is: any group of individuals with one or more identified characteristics designated by law for protection. This webinar by the Dept. of Civil Rights, will help any municipality better understand what Protected Classes are, their meaning and how they can help any municipality determine which ones might work for your community.

Sign in information will be available soon. Please check back.
