We Challenge Discrimination

CREEC is a nonprofit membership organization whose goal is to ensure that everyone can fully and independently participate in our nation’s civic life without discrimination based on race, gender, disability, religion, national origin, age, sexual orientation, or gender identity.


As our name suggests, CREEC promotes our mission through education — member input, instructional materials and presentations, outreach, advocacy, humor, collaboration, and animated YouTube videos — and enforcement, that is, investigating and filing impact and class action lawsuits on a broad array of civil rights issues.  Based in Denver, Berkeley, and Nashville our scope is nationwide. Through our advocacy and litigation, CREEC has successfully transformed the practices of major companies and government entities.

We always hope our educational efforts are effective — and entertaining! — but let’s face it, many civil rights laws have been on the books for decades and some folks still haven’t gotten the point.  We call them “defendants.”   Well, first we call them “subjects of investigation,” then we call them “recipients of demand letters,” then “entities we’re politely discussing the requirements of civil rights laws with,” and THEN — if they still haven’t gotten the point — we call them “defendants.”

We hope you’ll join us and let us know what we should be investigating and who we should be educating.  There’s no cost to join CREEC.
