WHERE DO YOU FILE A COMPLAINT

If you believe you or someone you know has experienced anti-Semitism on your campus, or has been retaliated against for reporting an anti-Semitic incident WHERE DO YOU FILE A COMPLAINT.

For assistance in determining whether your civil rights have been violated contact U.S. Department of Education  Office for Civil Rights or call 1-800-421-3481 for information on how the U.S. Department of Education may help you. 

It is important to remember that the Office for Civil Rights’ jurisdiction is based on ancestry or ethnic characteristics, since it does not have jurisdiction to investigate claims of religious discrimination per se. Hon. Stephanie Monroe, Assistant Secretary of Education for Civil Rights, has recently stated that the Office for Civil Rights will not investigate allegations of anti-Semitic harassment unless the allegations also include other forms of discrimination over which the Office for Civil Rights has subject matter jurisdiction.
