Civil Rights

A new Civil Rights movement for African, Latino, and Asian Americans

"We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness ..." - from the Declaration of Independence.

Our founding fathers laid the groundwork more than 200 years ago.  Unfortunately, these "unalienable Rights" did not apply to African Americans (slavery was still legal at the time) or women (who could not vote).  African, Hispanic, and Asian Americans have spent the last two centuries fighting for equality in the eyes of the law, law enforcement, courts, and public opinion.  The black Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s galvanized the nation and led to sweeping legislation - the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Today, a new Civil Rights movement is underway to continue the work of its predecessor.
