Georgia Civil Rights Committee

Welcome to the Georgia Civil Rights page.

The Georgia Civil Rights Advisory Committee (CRAC) members and the Special Emphasis Program Managers (SEPM), serve in an advisory role to the State's Deputy Civil Rights Officer (State Conservationist), to help ensure that Federal agencies institute, plan, and take affirmative steps to provide equal opportunity to all applicants and employees in all areas of employment (recruitment, hiring, training, promotions, and awards); and provide a means for underserved groups to communicate their concerns to state leaders.


In Georgia, NRCS staff works closely with other USDA Agencies and partners to facilitate equitable treatment of NRCS customers and employees while ensuring the successful delivery of the Civil Rights programs and activities in Georgia.


To promote harmony and diversity for one Georgia.
