Founded during the crucial struggle for civil rights during the 1960s, the U.S Commission on Civil Rights has continued its work right up to the present day, and remains an important part of the federal government. Along with investigating claims of discrimination, the Commission also has a significant research arm, and the agency produces numerous reports and public news briefs that are offered here as well. Some of the more intriguing reports available on the site's homepage include "Redefining Rights in America: The Civil Rights Record of the George W. Bush Administration, 2001-2004" and "Broken Promises: Evaluating the Native American Health Care System". Visitors may also want to look through the material that provides information on how to file a complaint with the Commission, or look through the numerous job opportunities. Some of the material on the site is also available in Spanish.
