Title IX: 25 Years of Progress June 1997
Title IX:
A Sea Change in Gender Equity in Education
Athletic competition builds character in our boys. We do not need that kind of character in our girls. Connecticut judge, No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any educational programs or activity receiving federal financial assistance. From the preamble to Title IX of the Education Amendments of Civil rights laws have historically been a powerful mechanism for effecting social change in the United States. They represent a national commitment to end discrimination and establish a mandate to bring the excluded into the mainstream. These laws ensure that the federal government delivers on the Constitution's promise of equal opportunity so that every individual has the right to develop his or her talents. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 bolsters this national agenda and prohibits sex discrimination in federally assisted education programs. Modeled on Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibiting race, color, and national origin discrimination, it was followed by three other pieces of civil rights legislation: Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibiting disability discrimination; the Age Discrimination Act of 1975; and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 prohibiting disability discrimination by public entities.

International Day of Older Persons
Statement from the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission on isues facing Older Australians. 1 October 2000: INTERNATIONAL DAY OF OLDER PERSONS In the 1970's and part way through the 1980's there were studies about the aged that were concerned overall with geriatrics and their care in nursing homes. In the 1980's we continued to talk about them as if they were a burden to society. We no longer see the elderly as a burden to society. Older people are a very productive group in society and to dismiss them as non-contributing dependants is to risking wasting a lot of resources. The world paid tribute to older people in 1999 by naming it the International Year of Older Persons. The trouble with International Years is that the memory of the celebrations fades quickly once the new year dawns and the impetus for tackling the issues raised during that year wanes. October 1 - the United Nations' officially designated International Day of Older Persons - is a time for remembering the commitments made and taking the action needed.

USDA JOINS FORCES WITH HUD TO FIGHT HOUSING DISCRIMINATION Release No. 0225.97 USDA contact: Tom Amontree (202) 720-4623 HUD contact: Victor Lambert (202) 708-0685 USDA JOINS FORCES WITH HUD TO FIGHT HOUSING DISCRIMINATION WASHINGTON, July 11, 1997The U.S. Department of Agriculture can now assist rural Americans with housing discrimination complaints more quickly, efficiently, and with more remedies thanks to a new working arrangement with the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Agriculture Secretary Dan Glickman and Housing Secretary Andrew Cuomo today announced that under a new agreement, USDA will refer all fair housing discrimination claims to HUD. Under this system, HUD attorneys will present complaints and HUD administrative law judges will hear the cases. "The American dream of homeownership must not succumb to the nightmare of discrimination," Glickman said. "Equal access to own or rent rural housing is necessary if we are to complete our mission to help build a better rural America," he said, adding that USDA has "zero-tolerance for discriminatory practices" in any of its programs. "This agreement with HUD is part of USDA's commitment to ensure the civil rights of all customers and employees of USDA, and it's also an important part of the President's race initiative." "Housing discrimination is illegal and intolerable everywhere in America whether in our biggest cities or in our smallest rural crossroads," Cuomo said. "Beginning today, we will bring the full force of the Fair Housing Act to bear to stamp out housing discrimination everywhere in our country." The Fair Housing Act provides several rights and remedies that USDA, before this agreement, did not have at its disposal, including the power to impose temporary restraining orders, use subpoenas during investigations, employ testers where appropriate, and impose civil penalties, punitive damages, and damages for pain and suffering. Through its various rental and homeownership loan programs, USDA is the nation's largest provider of rural housing. As part of the agreement, USDA and HUD will share information and documents about civil rights claims which allege a violation of the Fair Housing Act. They will also jointly investigate these claims, maintain and share a cumulative list of claims, and participate in joint training on fair housing. In addition, USDA is reviewing all programs and activities to investigate any past discrimination in the sale or rental of rural housing it finances. Any discrimination uncovered by the investigation will be aggressively prosecuted, Glickman said. In 1996, USDA financed new or improved home ownership opportunities for over 61,000 low- to moderate-income families in rural America. Since 1949 USDA has helped over 2 million rural families purchase their own home and has financed construction of 458,000 units of affordable rental housing in rural areas. Under the Fair Housing Act, HUD receives 10,000 claims of housing discrimination annually. Approximately 11 percent of those come from non-metropolitan areas. While the agreement provides that HUD will investigate and decide fair housing claims, USDA will continue to process complaints under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Age Discrimination Act of 1975. # NOTE: USDA news releases and media advisories are available on the Internet.

World's Older Population Rapidly Growing, U.N.'s ILO Says
Adds that new jobs needed to avoid poverty of elderly The number of people in the world over the age of 60 is rapidly increasing, and millions of new jobs will be needed to avoid widespread poverty among the elderly, the U.N. International Labor Organization (ILO) says. In an April 8 press release announcing the Second World Assembly on Ageing being held April 8-12 in Madrid, the ILO said that more jobs for women, young people and people with disabilities will be the key to financing social security and social protection systems in the future. The agency also proposed employment policies that would prevent discrimination against older workers, allow older people to move gradually from an active working life to retirement and provide lifelong training, the release said. The release said improved health and a decline in fertility rates has lengthened life expectancies and reduced the ratio of newborns to the general population. "This amounts to a demographic revolution," ILO Director-General Juan Somavia said in the release. "As our societies age, the prospect of poverty and exclusion are cause for grave concern."

It's easier to find what you need as more sites tailor content for older users The senior set is racing onto the Information Highway. When ACNielsen surveyed North American Internet users in 1997, it was surprised to find that 15% of them were above 50and that they constitute one of the fastest-growing groups on the Web. ''Computers are like the new hobby for seniors,'' says Rob McHugh, senior programmer for Yahoo! Seniors' Guide (table). ''They're just hungry for information.'' Indeed, Third Age Media ( ), an online news service for senior citizens, found that 83% of users 50 and up log on daily and spend more than eight hours a week surfing. And more and more older users are joining the throng as PC prices fall and adult children give ''hand-me-up'' computers to mom and dad, notes Ann Wrixon, executive director of SeniorNet, a San Francisco-based nonprofit group. So how do you join the online crowd? First, you might want to take some lessons in basic computing. SeniorNet (415 495-4990), has trained more than 100,000 older adults at 134 learning centers in 35 statesand on cruises offered by World Explorer. During the courses, seniors teach other seniors how to work with computers, using a curriculum ''designed to reduce the fear of technology,'' Wrixon says. Once online, older computer users become avid shoppers as well as surfers. Third Age found that 50-plus users were 30% more likely than their younger counterparts to have ordered goods and services over the Net.

After all, life is not just about survival - it's about how we live, the people we are and the people we can be. Besides, you have to have reached a certain age before you know there is no substitute for experience. This leaflet says a bit about what's happening in Scotland to help us get more out of life both now and in the future. Find out what's happening to help make our future brighter. Use the contact details in this leaflet for more information.
As we get older we often like to make changes to what we do and the hours we work whether in an existing job, or if we are looking to re-enter the workplace after a period out of the job market. More and more employers are recognising the experience and skills older workers can bring to their workforce. From 2006 age discrimination in the workplace will be unlawful.

PAUL EMENS, VICE CHAIRMAN AIR LINE PILOTS AGAINST AGE DISCRIMINATION TESTIMONY BEFORE THE HOUSE AVIATION SUBCOMMITTEE MARCH 12, 2003 I represent the pilots of ALPAAD (Air Line Pilots Against Age Discrimination). We wish to see the Age 60 Rule amended to at least the age of 65. Others supporting our goal are the AARP, EEOC, Southwest Airlines Pilots Association (SWAPA), Organization of Black Airline Pilots (OBAP), and the Professional Pilots Federation (PPF). Thank you for giving me the opportunity to address you today. It has been over twenty years since pilots supporting a change in the Age 60 Rule have had the opportunity to make our case before you. That was 1979 – when the House of Representatives passed a bill amending the rule. Back then the Air Line Pilots Association led the fight to amend the rule and had done so for twenty years. My father, an ALPA pilot for Pan American World Airways walked these congressional halls in an effort to overturn the Age 60 Rule. That legislation ultimately failed to become law and shortly afterward ALPA reversed its position, shifting from supporting change to opposing change. 26 years after my father was forced to retire. I, and others like me, continue the fight.

Section IV: Administrative Appeals Agencies
In the Federal dispute resolution process, four key agencies adjudicate appeals arising from workplace disputes. These administrative appeals agencies are the Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA), the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB), and the Office of Special Counsel (OSC). Each has its own statutorily-based areas over which it has authority to adjudicate. MSPB also has appellate jurisdiction over additional matters as authorized by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM). In addition, while not an "administrative appeals" agency, this section also discusses the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS) since much of what that agency offers for dispute resolution cross-cuts the entire Government, including the four agencies above. This section provides a short summary of the various ADR initiatives each of the four administrative appeals agencies and FMCS are using (or planning to use) at this time. In addition to describing initiatives, the summaries provide the names and contact information for individuals at each agency who can provide more detailed information if needed.
