Outreach and Education
MDCR provides Outreach and Education activities on request to governmental units, community-based organizations, law enforcement, advocacy groups, educational institutions and the private sector.
Outreach by MDCR colleagues may evolve into a partnership between the Department and another group, or working relationships that promote MDCR in the community. Outreach includes networking at community events, keeping abreast of current issues, and information sharing.
MDCR colleagues provide resources to the community on civil rights laws and current and historical issues, aimed at preventing discrimination. Training is available on cultural comptency, disability, sexual harassment, housing discrimination, hate crimes and civil rights law. Requests for presentations should be emailed to MDCR-INFO@Michigan.gov.
