Do you think you were treated unfairly in housing, employment or a public place? Now you can get help quickly by filling out an online intake form.
The Seattle Office for Civil Rights created the new online Intake Questionnaire to make it easier for people to take action when they feel they have been victims of illegal discrimination.
"We want to make sure that people have options if they believe they have been treated unfairly in housing, at work, in a public place or in contracting," said Julie Nelson, director of SOCR. "The sooner we learn about people's situations, the sooner we can begin to address them. The new web site provides an additional way to get the process started."
The Intake Questionnaire is available at http://www.seattle.gov/civilrights/howtoocr.htm. Customers can fill out the questionnaire online and send it electronically, or print out a copy, fill it out and mail it. As soon as SOCR receives the questionnaire, we will call back to set up an in-person interview.
People also can get help by calling SOCR at 206-684-4500 to speak with an intake investigator, or by visiting our office in the Central Building, 810 Third Avenue, Suite 750 in downtown Seattle.
