Civil Rights Advisory Committee

The Civil Rights Advisory Committee (CRAC) in Mississippi implements the requirements of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which created the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and prohibited discrimination in employment based on race, color, religion, sex or national origin. Executive Order 11478 stated that Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is an integral part of every aspect of the federal government's personnel policy. The Civil Rights Advisory Committee also has responsibilities under Title VI - Program Delivery.

Thirteen Special Emphasis Program Managers participate in the committee conducting field office reviews, area meetings, training and discussion groups.
