Diversity and Inclusion
K-State Research and Extension is committed to providing equal opportunity for participation in all programs, services and activities. Program information may be available in languages other than English. Reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities, including alternative means for communication (e.g., Braille, large print, audio tape, and American Sign Language) may be requested by contacting the event contact two weeks prior to the start of the event. Requests received after this date will be honored when it is feasible to do so. Language access services, such as interpretation or translation of vital information will be provided free of charge to limited English proficient individuals upon request.
Club leadership and adult volunteers are strongly encouraged to consult with the local Post Rock District office and be aware of the process required to support the commitment of K-State Research and Extension and Kansas 4-H.

NOTICE OF CIVIL RIGHTS
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 states in part: “No person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”
The Educational Amendments of 1972 states in part: “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”
The Age Discrimination Act of 1975 states in part: “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of age, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 gives civil rights protection to individuals with disabilities. ADA generates equal opportunity to individuals with disabilities in employment, public accommodations, transportation, state and local government services and telecommunications.
K-State Research and Extension is funded from federal, state, and county funds; and, therefore, is subject to the provisions, rules, and regulations of this legislation.
The Affirmative Action Plan of the Cooperative Extension Service states that the Extension Service cannot provide significant assistance to any organization that excludes any person from membership or participation because of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, or disability. It further states that the Extension staff must have a letter on file from groups or organizations to which they provide significant assistance certifying that discriminatory practices are not followed.
For our records, please sign the certification statement and return to us. We have enjoyed our continued working relationship with your group and look forward to working with you in the future.
Civil Rights Certification Statement: Each year, the 4-H club and 4-H council (and other affiliated groups) are to review the Notice of Civil Rights letter and complete the Civil Rights Certification Statement. Please return the Civil Rights Certification Statement to the local Post Rock District office by November 1.
