While the Civil Rights movement might have taken place in America some 50 years ago, the fight for equality continues today. Civil Rights violations of the 21st Century arise in a variety of different ways. Some of the more common Civil Rights cases that still come before courts in the state of California include -
- Police misconduct, such as excessive force and racial profiling
- Employment discrimination such as gender bias or race discrimination
- Failing to make reasonable accommodations for a handicapped individual
- Free speech violations
Those are but a few of the many ways in which citizens are discriminated against each and every day. Don’t stand by and accept discrimination as a fact of life when it is harming your career or your personal life. You should not have to suffer for the biases and prejudices of another individual. Civil Rights are meant to be equal in the United States, and you have every right to make sure that is the case for you.
