It may seem surreal that in today’s modern world we have to fight to protect people’s basic rights to fair treatment. Sadly, inequality and discrimination are still a part of everyday life for many people.
Civil rights law refers to the protections and liberties granted to all Americans. The purpose of civil rights is to protect you against discrimination and harassment on the grounds of physical or mental disability, gender, religion, race, national origin, age, status as a member of the uniformed services, sexual orientation, or gender identity. They also preserve rights such as privacy, the freedoms of thought and conscience, speech and expression, religion, the press, and movement. Designed to balance the competing interests of institutions and individuals or groups, civil rights law guards against infringements of personal liberties protected under the Constitution. Oftentimes the entities responsible for committing civil rights violations are those with the most power and resources on their sides such as government agencies and corporations. To stand up for your civil and human rights, you will need a compassionate attorney with experience in this complex legal field.
