Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color or national origin in programs and activities receiving Federal financial assistance.  Specifically, Title VI states that "no person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance."  (42 U.S.C. Section 2000d).

The Federal Railroad Administration works to ensure nondiscriminatory transportation in support of our mission to enhance the social and economic quality of life for all Americans.  The FRA Office of Civil Rights is responsible for civil rights compliance and monitoring to ensure nondiscrimination of intercity rail services.
