Called the Fair Practices and Anti-Discrimination Department until 1983, the UAW’s Civil Rights Department oversees the union’s diversity and anti-prejudice initiatives. According to the union’s website, the “Civil Rights Department works closely with the UAW’s Local Union Civil Rights Committees to educate, mobilize, and assist” the union’s members in matters related to discrimination and sexual harassment. The department also campaigns actively in support of voter registration and turnout efforts in various communities. The UAW Civil Rights Department Records consist of documents of the union’s investigations into claims of discrimination by their members, correspondence, educational videos, conference materials, and diversity training materials.
