Civil Rights Act of 1964 & Your Legal Rights
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was supposed to end systemic discrimination against people based on their race, religion, color, sex, or national origin. Congress followed up with additional acts including the American's with Disabilities Act, the Fair Housing Act Amendment, and the Family Medical Leave Act, amongst other. The purpose of these acts was to level the playing field and allow people of all means and persuasions to participate freely and without encumbrances in society. Unfortunately, many people (particularly women and people of color) are still discriminated against. Often in the name of religion people are discriminated against for their sexual preferences. An entire movement was birthed by women being sexually harassed in the workplace (#metoo). Ultimately, violating someones civil rights is a way to take advantage and belittle them.
Quinn Patton, formerly the Quinn Law Group, fights for equality and civil rights by representing those who have been discriminated against. We litigate in Maryland, Washington D.C. at the state and federal level. If you have been discriminated against by a federal agency, you need a federal civil rights attorney. If you have been discriminated against by your employer or landlord, you likely need a Maryland civil rights lawyer or Washington D.C. civil rights lawyer, depending on where you are located.
