Civil Rights

What Are Civil Rights?

“Civil rights” refer to the enforceable privilege of all individuals to be treated fairly and free of discrimination regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, age, nation of origin, physical ability, religion, or certain other characteristics. Civil rights protect the advancement of equality for all people across a number of settings including education, politics, law enforcement, employment, housing and many others. Examples of civil rights include:

  • Freedom of speech
  • The right to vote
  • Freedom from involuntary servitude
  • Equality in public places
  • The right to a fair trial
  • The right to government services
  • The right to public education
  • And many others

Unlike human rights or natural rights, civil rights are not god-given. Though the majority of civil rights are guaranteed and regulated by the federal government, some are passed at a state or sometimes municipal level. A violation of civil rights, or the denial of certain privileges based off one’s characteristics of personal identity, presents potential grounds for a lawsuit. Examples of civil rights violations include:

  • Racial profiling
  • Hate crimes
  • Slavery rings
  • Religious interference or property damage
  • Exploitation of migrant workers
  • And many others
