WVC 5-11-2

§5-11-2. Declaration of policy.

It is the public policy of the state of West Virginia to

provide all of its citizens equal opportunity for employment, equal

access to places of public accommodations, and equal opportunity in

the sale, purchase, lease, rental and financing of housing

accommodations or real property. Equal opportunity in the areas of

employment and public accommodations is hereby declared to be a

human right or civil right of all persons without regard to race,

religion, color, national origin, ancestry, sex, age, blindness or

disability. Equal opportunity in housing accommodations or real

property is hereby declared to be a human right or civil right of

all persons without regard to race, religion, color, national

origin, ancestry, sex, blindness, disability or familial status.

The denial of these rights to properly qualified persons by

reason of race, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, sex,

age, blindness, disability or familial status is contrary to the

principles of freedom and equality of opportunity and is

destructive to a free and democratic society.
