Anti Discrimination Policy – Title VI


The Civil Rights Act of 1964

Title VI ensures your right to receive equal treatment and service opportunities regardless of your race, color, national origin, or limited English proficiency in any program or activity that receives Federal funds or other Federal financial assistance. It is the policy of E.G. Fisher Public Library to treat all patrons fairly and without discrimination. If you feel you have been discriminated against or treated unfairly, please fill out the Title VI Complaint Form that will go directly to the library’s Title VIĀ  coordinator.

Your complaint will be investigated by the Title VI Coordinator. If your complaint is against the Title VI Coordinator, it will be investigated by Mcminn County Library Board. Investigation may include speaking to you directly and contacting witnesses you list in the complaint. Findings will be reported to you within 30 days of receipt of your complaint.

Any person who believes that discrimination has occurred in violation of Title VI may be filed with the state or federal agency involved. Complaints may also be filed with the written complaint with the Tennessee Human Rights Commission or the United States Department of Justice. For more information, please contact the Tennessee Human Rights Commission.

Complaints must be filed within 180 days of the alleged discriminatory act.
