TITLE VI NONDISCRIMINATION POLICY STATEMENT

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin in programs and activities receiving Federal financial assistance. Specifically, Title VI provides that “no person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.” 42 U.S.C. Section 2000d. Laredo International Airport (LRD) operates its programs and services without regard to race, color, and national origin, religion, sex, disability (physical or mental), age, genetic information, marital status, sexual orientation or identity, AIDs/HIV status, medical condition, political views or affiliations in accordance with the provisions of Title VI Civil Rights Acts. Any person who believes they have been aggrieved by any unlawful discriminatory practice under Title VI may file a complaint with LRD Title VI Coordinator.
It is unlawful for airport operators and their lessees, tenants, concessionaires and contractors to discriminate against any person because of race, color, national origin, sex, creed, or disability in public services and employment opportunities.
Allegations of discrimination should be promptly reported to
