CIVIL RIGHTS COMMISSION The U. S. Commission on Civil Rights [Civil Rights Commission] was established by Congress under the Civil Rights Act of 1957, which was amended by the Civil Rights Act of 1964. As presently constituted, the Com­mission is a bipartisan group of six individuals empowered to investigate violations of civil rights legislation; to appraise the effectiveness of federal laws and policies in the civil rights area; and to submit interim reports to the President and Congress containing its findings and recommendations.
