Civil Rights Violations

Your Civil Rights

The First Amendment: Guarantees the freedom of speech and provides protection against retaliation. Additionally, incarcerated persons have a First Amendment right of access to the courts to prove their innocence or the wrongfulness of their conviction.

The Fourth Amendment: Protects against illegal searches and seizures, as well as police brutality. Unlawful arrests and wrongful conviction cases often involve violations of an individual’s rights under the Fourth Amendment, as well as the Fourteenth Amendment’s Due Process Clause.

Equal Protection and the Civil Rights Act of 1964: Provides protection from discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, and national origin.
