Your Civil Rights!

Use it or lose it, this is what they say. If you have rights, you better practice it and preserve and grow it up! 😉

This is your civil rights under the USA Constitution. You need to know it so long as you are a citizen here:

Civil and political rights are a class of rights that protect individuals‘ freedom from infringement by governmentssocial organizations, and private individuals. They ensure one’s entitlement to participate in the civil and political life of society and the state without discrimination or repression.

Civil rights include the ensuring of peoples’ physical and mental integritylife, and safety; protection from discrimination on grounds such as racegendersexual orientationgender identitynational origincoloragepolitical affiliationethnicityreligion, and disability;[1][2][3] and individual rights such as privacy and the freedom of thoughtspeechreligionpressassembly, and movement.

Political rights include natural justice (procedural fairness) in law, such as the rights of the accused, including the right to a fair trialdue process; the right to seek redress or a legal remedy; and rights of participation in civil society and politics such as freedom of association, the right to assemble, the right to petition, the right of self-defense, and the right to vote.

Civil and political rights form the original and main part of international human rights.[4] They comprise the first portion of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights (with economic, social, and cultural rights comprising the second portion). The theory of three generations of human rights considers this group of rights to be “first-generation rights”, and the theory of negative and positive rights considers them to be generally negative rights.
