The Seattle Office for Civil Rights (SOCR) created a new online intake questionnaire to make it easier for people to take action when they feel that they have been victims of illegal discrimination.
“We want to make sure that people have options if they believe they have been treated unfairly in housing, at work, in a public place, or in contracting,” said Julie Nelson, director of SOCR. “The sooner we learn about people’s situations, the sooner we can begin to address them. The new Web site provides an additional way to get the process started.”
Customers can fill out the questionnaire online and send it electronically, or they can print a copy, fill it out, and send it through the mail.
As soon as SOCR receives the questionnaire, a representative will contact customers to set up an in-person interview. ♦
The intake questionnaire is available at www.seattle.gov/civilrights/howtoocr.htm. Call 206-684-4500 to speak with an intake investigator or by visiting the office in the Central Building, 810 Third Avenue Suite 750, Seattle.
