Title VI – Non-Discrimination Policy

Title VI – Non-Discrimination Policy & Equal Opportunity

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin in programs and activities receiving Federal financial assistance. Specifically, Title VI provides that “no person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance” (42 U.S.C. Section 2000d).

Jewish Family Services of Washtenaw County is committed to ensuring that no person is excluded from participation in, or denied the benefits of its transit services on the basis of race, color, or national origin, as protected by Title VI in Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Circular 4702.1.A.

Equal Opportunity: Non-Discrimination  Jewish Family Services is an equal opportunity employer and selects and promotes employees on the basis of ability, experience, education and training, and character in order to have the best available person in every position.  JFS positions are filled without regard to actual or perceived race, color, age, gender, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, HIV status, socioeconomic status, marital status, family responsibilities, educational association, condition of pregnancy, source of income, height, weight, arrest record, genetic information, or physical or mental disability not related to the ability to perform essential job duties. The JFS equal employment opportunity policy applies to all of our employment practices, including hiring, training, assignment of work, advancement and compensation.  All JFS employment practices and policies comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws.  JFS services shall be made available and delivered without discrimination based on the above characteristics, categories, conditions, circumstances or statuses noted herein. 

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Defined  
Diversity is a communal practice that honors and respects each individual’s life perspectives, experiences, histories, beliefs, cultures, values and traditions regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, abilities/disabilities, age and socio-economic status and rises above the power structure that supports institutional discrimination which perpetuates societal privilege. 

 Equity is the presence of fair and equal justice and opportunities for all, including those who are in need.  JFS is committed to living/practicing the Jewish value of Tikkun Olam, Repairing the World, by reducing barriers to access for services and resources, being an advocate for under-served and under-represented groups, and ensuring that disparities within the organization and the community are recognized and mitigated or eliminated. 

Inclusion provides a welcoming environment that deliberately ensures all who interact with JFS in any capacity feel respected, engaged, valued and heard.
