Justice Dept. Civil Rights Lawyers Make Video for ‘It Gets Better Project’
Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights Tom Perez and his staff at the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Justice Department have produced a video message for the “It Gets Better Project.” A blog post says:
The Civil Rights Division and the entire Justice Department are committed to ending bullying and harassment in schools, and the video highlights the Department’s authority to enforce federal laws that protect students from discrimination and harassment at school because of their race, national origin, disability, religion, and sex, including harassment based on nonconformity with gender stereotypes. The video features Division employees who share their individual stories and personal messages that a better future awaits youth who may be experiencing bullying or harassment.
