Civil Rights Law

The United States constitution gives citizens certain fundamental and inalienable rights called civil rights. They are the rights of personal liberty guaranteed to every U.S. citizen, regardless of race, religion, sex, age or disabilities.
Some of these rights include freedom of speech, press, assembly, the right to vote, freedom from involuntary servitude, and the right to equality in public places.
Discrimination according to a persons’ race, sex, religion, age, previous condition of servitude, physical limitation, national origin and in some instances sexual preference is prohibited.
The existence of civil rights is recognized internationally through different agreements and the protection of civil rights is essential to the American way of life.
