HHS Office for Civil Rights, Civil Rights Division
The Civil Rights Division (CRD) in the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) seeks legal interns to assist with its enforcement and outreach efforts. OCR promotes and ensures that people have equal access to and opportunity to participate in certain health care and human services programs without facing unlawful discrimination. CRD carries out this mission by enforcing Federal laws and regulations that prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, disability, age and, in certain circumstances, sex and religion, in programs and activities that receive financial assistance from HHS. CRD also enforces Federal laws that prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability in health care and social service programs of state and local governments.
