Notice of Non-Discrimination

Multnomah County strives to treat all people equally. It is our policy not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, disability, religion, age, sex/gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, marital status, veteran status, source of income, or any other basis prohibited by federal, state, or local law.

We want you to receive quality service and care no matter who you are. One way we do this is by helping people with Limited English Proficiency or people with visual or hearing impairments. Please tell us what kind of help you need, and we will provide you with free services, such as:

• Qualified language interpreters (including sign language)

• Translations of written materials (including alternative formats)

• Culturally appropriate assistance and care

If you think Multnomah County has discriminated against you because of your race, color, national origin, disability, religion, age, sex/gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, marital status, veteran status, source of income, or any other basis prohibited by federal, state, or local law, please tell us immediately.
