#DC19 campaign highlights DC's non-discrimination protections

 A campaign launched by the DC Office of Human Rights (OHR) highlights the 19 traits covered under the DC Human Rights Act, which is the District’s anti-discrimination law. Eight different non-discrimination ads are scheduled to appear in 14 Metro stations throughout the month of October.

The campaign uses icons and messages to convey the protections to passing resident.

“Residents and visitors to the District are extremely fortunate to be protected by one of the most progressive anti-discrimination laws in the nation,” said OHR Director Mónica Palacio. “Our new #DC19 campaign aims to inform and remind people that discrimination based on traits related to physical appearance and other identities is not tolerated in the District, and that individuals can file complaints with the Office of Human Rights when discrimination occurs.”
