Your Civil Rights And Our Sworn Duty

Under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, discriminating against people based on the color of their skin, religion, national origin, or gender is considered a criminal offense. This law protects citizens from mistreatment, assault, and denial of services, employment, or access to places of public accommodation and government assistance on those grounds. Simply put, the law ensures that everyone is treated equally.
