Our Commitment to Implementing Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act Across DHS

DHS is committed to providing full inclusion and equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities.  Whether a person with a disability is traveling through an airport, crossing into our country at a border, becoming a naturalized citizen, or rebuilding their life following a disaster,  DHS has an obligation to ensure nondiscrimination and equal opportunity under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.  This video highlights the importance of the Rehabilitation Act and reinforces the Department’s commitment to ensuring nondiscrimination and equal opportunity for all throughout DHS.  The Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties leads the Department’s efforts to ensure equal access under Section 504 and other civil rights laws for all individuals with disabilities served or encountered by DHS.
