Civil Rights Act of 1964 Not Enforced in Tennessee
The City of Clarksville was discovered to be out of compliance with the Civil Rights Act of 1964 in a 2003 Title VI Compliance Report and Audit done by the Tennessee Title VI Compliance Commission, director John Birdsong. The city presently is still out of compliance with Title VI laws, rules and regulations and is currently still receiving federal funding from the following federal agencies either directly or as a pass-through recipient of the state of Tennessee. They are as follows: The US Department of Transportation, the Federal Transit Administration, the Federal Highway Administration, the Federal Aviation Agency, the Environment Protection Agency, the US Department of Commerce, the US Department of Labor and Workforce Development and the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The city of Clarksville and Tennessee State Agencies have fraudulently signed Letters of Assurance between the years 2002-2008 stating that they are in full compliance with the Civil Rights Act of 1964 in order to receive federal funds while in a non-compliance status. According to the US Department of Justice signing these Letters of Assurances is a form of fraud therefore making these actions are illegal.
