Everyone in Washington has civil rights.  There are federal, state, and local laws that protect our rights to fair treatment, including in employment, housing, education, voting, insurance, credit, and public accommodations. 

This page provides links to some of the primary civil rights laws and enforcement agencies.  These links are not intended to cover all rights that may apply in a particular circumstance.  Please refer to the Attorney General’s Civil Rights Resource Guide for additional information about specific civil rights laws.
