How Often Do Civil Rights Violations Occur?
Civil rights in the United States are held in high regard, especially compared to much of the world, but significant room for improvement exists.
Racial disparities in justice, poor prison and jail conditions, overly harsh sentences, neglected labor rights, and the rights of immigrants or non-citizens are some of the biggest challenges our country faces.
More than two million people are imprisoned at any given time, the largest population of prisoners in the world. Nearly 12 million people spend time in county jail each year, and black men are incarcerated at six times the rate of white men despite making up only 13 percent of the population, according to an annual report by Human Rights Watch.
These numbers make civil rights violations a very real threat to your wellbeing and the wellbeing of many groups in our country. You don’t have to stand for this treatment.
