Discrimination Complaints A Go-Go

Know an employer who only hires attractive gals who are "confident with their sexuality?" How about a landlord who refuses to rent to married folks? Or a bar that turns away younger men?

If you think it's possible that you have been discriminated against in the District of Columbia in housing, public accommodation, or employment, head over to the D.C. Office of Human Rights' free clinic at the DC Center next week for advice on filing a discrimination complaint. Details after the jump.

    Filing a "human rights" complaint because some snooty hipster bar's door policy wouldn't let you in?
