Your Civil Rights are enshrined in many sources, most importantly the Constitutions of the United States and the State of California. In addition, many civil rights are grounded in statutes passed by Congress and by the California State Legislature, such as the Unruh Act, Title VII, 42 USC § 1983 and more.
Some common Civil Rights violations are:
• Use of excessive force or other abuse by law enforcement officers.
• Search of your home, vehicle, or person without probable cause.
• Denial of public accommodations by hotels, restaurants and similar establishments on account of race, gender, ethnicity, national origin, religion, or any other unlawful discriminatory reason.
• Violence or threat of violence on account of race, gender, ethnicity, national origin, or any other unlawful discriminatory reason.
