Civil Rights

The Civil Rights Section works aggressively to protect Californians from discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, ancestry, sex, religion, age, marital status, sexual orientation or disability.

The mission of the Civil Rights Enforcement Section is to work with the public, state, federal and local government agencies, and with civil rights and community groups to identify civil rights issues and vigorously prosecute those who have violated the law, as well as seek the strongest remedies to deter further violations of those laws.

The Civil Rights Enforcement Section goes to great lengths to educate the public about civil rights laws. Outreach to communities is a top priority for the lawyers in this section.
