Demand Justice be Served – File a Discrimination Complaint

Has this ever happened to you?

  • Called a domestic violence hotline for help, only to have them laugh at your problem?
  • Requested police assistance regarding a physically abusive partner, and then been told you must have provoked her or otherwise been blamed based on her word?
  • Asked for VAWA-funded counseling services, legal help, housing assistance, or other help, and been turned down (or received less help) because you were a man?
  • Been openly taunted in court for claiming to be an abused man?

If so, then you have experienced sex discrimination. Federally-funded domestic violence programs that discriminate against males are violating the law.

It's important that you file a complaint, both for your benefit and in order to break the harmful pattern of discrimination. It's easy to do. Here's how:

  1. Fill out the complaint form, which can be found here: http://www.ojp.gov/ocr/cvi.pdf. When filling out the form, follow the instructions at http://www.mediaradar.org/docs/DiscriminationComplaintExample.pdf
  2. Fill out a short Identity Release Statement: http://www.ojp.gov/ocr/consent.pdf
  3. Send the completed forms to:

    Office of Justice Programs
    Office for Civil Rights
    810 7th Street, NW
    Washington, DC 20531

    And mail a copy to RADAR:

    RADAR Civil Rights Project
    P.O. Box 775
    Westfield, New Jersey 07090

  4. If the problem is not resolved to your satisfaction within 6 months, send a note to RADAR to let us know.

RADAR will summarize all the complaints on an on-going basis and present these summaries to lawmakers and the media. RADAR will not release your individual complaint to the public or the media unless you first give us your approval.

RADAR is not able to legally represent you on your specific complaint or assist you to resolve the problem.
