EEOC's OVERSIGHT COMMITTEES
Your Representatives and Senators are each assigned to committees. Due to the high volume and complexity of its work, Congress divides its tasks among approximately 250 committees and sub committees. Therefore, committee assignments are like legal or medical specialties. So when we are trying to get the ear of Congress on EEOC issues, there are two things they pay special attention to: 1) Do you live in their district? 2) Is the issue something they deal with on their committee? The best-case scenario is if your Representative sits on one of the committees listed below. Often when we post letters or action-faxes for you to send out, we will specify whether it would be helpful for you to target a specific committee, in addition to your own Representative. By clicking on the buttons listed below, you can pull up a particular committee and view its members, with links to their websites. You can also go to your own Representatives websites and check if they are on any of the committees listed below.
House Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies
House Committee on Education and Labor
Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science and Relate Agencies
Senate Committee on Health, Labor, Education, and Pensions
