Civil Rights, Environmental Justice and Accessibility

Title VI and ADA Compliance

The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality supports Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. DEQ does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, disability, age, or sex in administration of its programs or activities. DEQ does not intimidate or retaliate against any individual or group because they have exercised their rights to participate in actions protected, or oppose action prohibited, by 40 C.F.R. Parts 5 and 7, or for the purpose of interfering with such rights. 

DEQ also supports Title II of the Americans With Disabilities Act. We make every effort provide accessible facilities and materials. Contact: Willa Wilbanks, Title VI Coordinator

Protected classes in Oregon 

It is the policy of the State of Oregon that unlawful discrimination on the basis of Oregon's protected classes is a matter of state concern, and that such discrimination threatens individual rights and privileges and menaces the institutions and foundations of a free democratic state (OAR 839.005). Oregon's protected classes include race, color, national origin, disability, age, sex, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, and marital status.

Committed to environmental justice

Environmental Justice is the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, culture, education or income with respect to the development, implementation and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations and policies.

DEQ adopted our Environmental Justice Policy in 1997 to guide the agency’s work, including principles for making environmental equity inherent in the way DEQ does business. Visit our Environmental Justice page for full information on our work toward these principles.
