For more information, please visit: www.lincolncottage.org. *** President Lincoln's Cottage produced this publication in collaboration with the United States Commission on Civil Rights. The United States Commission on Civil Rights was established as an independent, bipartisan, fact-finding federal agency by the Civil Rights Act of 1957. The Commission investigates allegations relating to deprivations because of race, color, religion, sex, disability, age or national origin; or resulting from any pattern or practice of fraud regarding the right of United States citizens to vote or to have votes counted. The Commission also studies and makes appraisals of 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. Further, the Commission serves as a national clearinghouse for information relating to such discrimination or denials of equal protection, and prepares public service announcements or advertising campaigns to discourage such discrimination or denials of equal protection.
