Nondiscrimination

The City of Fayetteville is a welcoming, fair and tolerant city, which endeavors to ensure that all of its citizens and visitors will be free from unfair discrimination. Since federal and state law already protect citizens from most discrimination, the Uniform Civil Rights Protection Article shall extend existing protections to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender citizens and visitors as recognized elsewhere in state law. The people of the City of Fayetteville passed the Uniform Civil Rights Ordinance 5781 on Sept. 8, 2015.

Complaints of alleged citizen discrimination should be directed to City Attorney Kit Williams, who will notify the Civil Rights Commission that a complaint was received. The City attorney can be reached by phone at 479-575-8313, email, or in person at:

The City does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, age, national origin, religion or disability, in the admission or access to building, programs, or services offered by the City, as well as with regard to the City's hiring or employment practices.
