Diversity, Civil Rights, and Accessibility

Our values commit us to fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion, which means complying with laws that prohibit discrimination based on race, color, national origin (including language), sex, age, mental or physical disability, reprisal, sexual orientation, status as a parent, genetic information, and low-income status. You may therefore request reasonable accommodation to access programs, services or activities, such as: printed materials in alternative formats, sign language interpreters, assisted listening devices, web site accessibility/PDF document conversion, and public facility requests.

We further offer reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities who recreate in the state's great outdoors, such as accessible hunting and fishing facilities and lands as well as reduced license fees.

Any individual, group or entity that believes they have been subjected to discrimination is encouraged to contact the WDFW Title VI Coordinator at 833-885-1012 or Title6@dfw.wa.gov to file a complaint.
