California Conferred a Civil-Rights Award to Gov. Jerry Brown Amid Civil-Rights Violations

Civil- Rights Agency offered Civil-Rights Award to Gov Brown -- Secretary Anna Caballero receiving award on behalf of the Governor- Dec 10, 2013. 

On Dec 10, 2013, California's Civil-Rights agency (aka Department of Fair Employment and House (DFEH)) held a Council meeting at the State Capitol. In that meeting, DFEH Council issued a Civil-Rights award to Gov. Jerry Brown.

Earlier in 2012, Governor Jerry Brown signed Senate Bill 1038 that eliminated Civil-Rights agency's adjudicative authority to restore Civil Rights. Nonetheless, the Civil-Rights agency can file a lawsuit in a court to protect civil rights. Gov Brown appointed five attorneys on the DFEH Council who took Oath of Office on June 18, 2013.
