The Colorado Civil Rights Division is charged with enforcing Colorado's anti-discrimination laws in the areas of employment (Colorado Revised Statutes § 24-34-402), housing (Colorado Revised Statutes §24-34-502), and public accommodations (Colorado Revised Statutes § 24-34-602). We promote awareness of civil rights laws through training and education to groups and individuals across the state. We work in cooperation with federal and local agencies, such as the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development/Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity (HUD/FHEO), as well as community-based organizations that promote and protect civil rights. CCRD maintains formal cooperative agreements with EEOC and HUD/FHEO to avoid duplication of efforts on those cases where joint jurisdiction (state and federal) exists.

Disability Law Colorado is an independent public interest non-profit specializing in civil rights and discrimination issues. It protects the human, civil and legal rights of people with mental and physical disabilities, people with HIV and older people throughout Colorado. The Legal Center's primary goal is to open up the legal system to those who would otherwise be unable to voice their needs because of the complexity of the service bureaucracy, their disability or because they are unable to act on their own behalf.

The ACLU of Colorado is a civil rights organization that is a private institution funded exclusively by the donations of supporters. Its mission is to protect, defend and extend the civil rights and civil liberties of all people in Colorado through litigation, education and advocacy. The legal department, with two full-time attorneys on staff, writes letters, talks to government agencies and, if necessary, files lawsuits on behalf of clients whose rights have been violated; annually it litigates 50-70 cases with the assistance of approximately 100 volunteer cooperating attorneys. At the state Capitol and at city council meetings across Colorado, the ACLU advocates for rational laws that protect people's rights and liberties. The ACLU engages and informs Coloradans through public forums on current civil liberties issues, "Know Your Rights" trainings, rallies and media events; it also works with students and young professionals who are interested in civil liberties.

The Civil Rights Act of 1957 created the US Commission on Civil Rights. Established as an independent, bipartisan, fact-finding federal agency, the Commission's mission is to inform the development of national civil rights policy and enhance enforcement of federal civil rights laws. It pursues this mission by studying alleged deprivations of voting rights and alleged discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, age, disability, or national origin, or in the administration of justice. It plays a role in advancing civil rights through objective and comprehensive investigation, research, and analysis on issues of fundamental concern to the federal government and the public.

The mission of the US Department of Education Office for Civil Rights (OCR) is to ensure equal access to education and to promote educational excellence throughout the nation through vigorous enforcement of civil rights. The OCR serves student populations facing discrimination and the advocates and institutions promoting systemic solutions to civil rights problems. An important responsibility is resolving complaints of discrimination. Agency-initiated cases, typically called "compliance reviews", permit OCR to target resources on compliance problems that appear particularly acute. OCR also provides technical assistance to help institutions achieve voluntary compliance with the civil rights laws that OCR enforces. An important part of OCR's technical assistance is partnerships designed to develop creative approaches to preventing and addressing discrimination.
