For decades, there have been allegations of discrimination in the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) programs and workforce. Reports and congressional testimony have described weaknesses in USDA's programs -- in particular, in resolving complaints of discrimination and in providing minorities access to programs. The Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 authorized the creation of the position of Assist. Sec. for Civil Rights, giving USDA an executive that could provide leadership for resolving these long-standing problems. This testimony focuses on USDA's efforts to: (1) resolve discrimination complaints; (2) report on minority participation in USDA programs; and (3) strategically plan its efforts. Illustrations.
