July 15, 2014 Leave a comment
With the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Civil Rights Act, the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) is making the official, digital version of the law available on the agency’s Federal Digital System (FDsys). GPO is the Federal Government’s official, digital, secure resource for producing, procuring, cataloging, indexing, authenticating, disseminating, and preserving the official information products of the U.S. Government.
President Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act into law on July 2, 1964 prohibiting segregation and discrimination regarding schools, public places and activities, and employment practices. GPO employees produced the original document 50 years ago.
