It is important that we all work together to address unlawful discrimination, including violent acts or threats based upon protected classes. As in all emergencies, the COVID-19 outbreak has affected people of many different races, religions, and ethnicities, as well as those with disabilities. Unlawful discrimination may also discourage people from coming forward to seek treatment or information. Laws prohibiting unlawful discriminatory
behavior must and will be vigorously enforced.

If you believe you are a victim of discrimination based on race, sex, religion, national origin, disability, or other protected classes, you can find information about how
to file a complaint athttps://www.justice.gov/crt/how-file-complaint and

Rights Division at toll-free 855-856-1247 or 202-514-3827.
