Equal Rights for Public Employees is likely a reference to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Created by the Civil Rights Act of 1964, its purpose is to enforce federal laws prohibiting workplace discrimination against employees of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, or genetic information. They also work to prevent discrimination from occurring by giving presentations to employees about law enforcement and writing documents about equal employment opportunity laws to help employees understand their rights and responsibilities at work. Their vision is to respect and include workplaces with equal employment opportunities for all.
