Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Nationality

Nationality (noun) is the relationship between a person and the political state to which he belongs or is affiliated. The New Hampshire Department of health and Human Services does not discriminate against people because of their age, sex, race, creed, color, marital status, familial status, physical or mental disability, religion, national origin, sexual orientation or political affiliation or belief. There will be no discrimination in accepting or providing services, or the admission or access to, or treatment or employment in, any of the department;s programs or activities.  

Facts:

  • People cannot be denied equal opportunity because they or their family are from another country, because they have a name or accent associated with a national origin group, because they participate in certain customs associated with a national origin group, or because they are married to or associate with people of a certain national origin.
  • The Department of Justice's Civil Rights Division is concerned that national origin discrimination may go unreported in the United States because victims of discrimination do not know their legal rights, or may be afraid to complain to the government.
  • Since 1997, refugees from over 30 different nations have arrived in New Hampshire. In 2012, of the 58,236 refugees admitted into the U.S. 365 were resettled in New Hampshire, which ranked 33rd among all states.
  • The New Hampshire Refugee Resettlement Program supports programming to place refugees into jobs that promote economic independence, generate tax dollars, and help local economies. The use of welfare-type funds is on a short-term basis.
