Do You Understand Your Civil Rights?

Under the NYC Human Rights Commission Law, everyone in New York City is protected based on their actual or perceived race, national origin, color, religion, age, alienage or citizenship status, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, or housing status.  Housing status is related to the kind of place you live—such as a private building, public housing, or the shelter system—or to being homeless.

Bias-based profiling by law enforcement or stop and frisk as it is commonly known, occurs when police or peace officers target you for arrest or other criminal law enforcement action, not because of specific information linking you to unlawful activity, but instead because of your protected status under the Law—your race, national origin, color, religion, age, alienage or citizenship status, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, or housing status. It may also apply to policies and procedures that have a disproportionate impact on a particular group, even if they do not explicitly target the group. Civil Rights attorney, Brian Figeroux, Esq. , explains your civil rights under the law.
