Civil Rights Lawyers in Houston

Customized Legal Solutions

The United States of America has faced a lot of turmoil and tension when it comes to providing truly equal rights for all. Today, many people are proud of the fact that there has been significant progress in terms of civil rights movements, even from the last century. However, while it is undeniable that there has been more equity for different people within the country, it is also just as undeniable that discriminatory behavior has continued into the 21st century.

In many cases, subtle bias and prejudice have been demonstrated in the workplace, between employers and employees. However, the sad truth is that discrimination against different ethnicities, genders, religions, and sexual orientations continue to be a big problem in society. If you have encountered this bias, immediately get in contact with Kennard Law, P.C. so our Civil Rights attorneys in Houston can get the justice you deserve.

Have Your Civil Rights Been Violated?

The term “civil rights” actually refers to any of the rights which our forefathers deemed to be unalienable. In other words, all individuals deserve to be treated equally and allowed to have the same opportunities for education, employment, housing, voting, worship, and many other prospects. No matter what your race, ethnicity, age, gender, religion, or national origin is, you are entitled to have the same chances for “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

If you have been at a restaurant, grocery store, school, voting office, hospital, or any other public or private institution or location, but have been treated differently on account of protected civil characteristics, you could file for a civil rights violation claim.

Types of Civil Rights Violations

There are so many distinct types of civil rights violations that it would be impossible to list them all. However, there are some primary examples of violations that are more common than others.

Here at Kennard Law, P.C., we have been able to help victims of discrimination in scenarios where they have faced civil rights violations such as:

  • Hate crimes
  • Abuses by law enforcement officials, including police brutality
  • Abusive speech and epithets based on discriminatory categories
  • Racial profiling
  • Voting rights, including behavior such as redistricting, making stringent “educational” or “civic” standards, failing to provide accessible voting information in multiple languages, etc.
  • Human trafficking
  • Involuntary servitude
  • Welfare issues, including being denied of rehabilitation and benefit income
  • Housing discrimination, such as that perpetrated in the past by the Department of Housing and Urban Development
  • Lack of disability access in social, medical, educational, and other facilities
  • Discrimination against children with disabilities by not appropriately providing for special education needs

Fighting Discrimination in the State of Texas

While the 1960s civil rights movement may have halted businesses from posting “Whites Only” signs, there are still a lot of discriminatory mindsets enduring within our country. Federal and state laws have been designed to protect people from being mistreated for their gender, ability status, age, ethnicity, nationality, religion, or sex. However, individuals are often still victims of prejudice, stereotypes, and even hate crimes. If you have been a victim of such injustice, immediately reach out to our Civil Rights lawyers in Houston.
