Civil Liberties Legal Assistance

Taxonomy Code: FT-1025

Programs that provide assistance for individuals who believe that their rights have been violated and need access to an attorney who is qualified to argue their case. The law differentiates between civil rights, i.e., the basic right of freedom from discrimination based on personal characteristics such as gender, race or disability, and civil liberties which are basic freedoms including the right to free speech, the right to privacy, the right to remain silent in a police interrogation, the right to be free from unreasonable searches of one's home, the right to a fair court trial, the right to marry and the right to vote. Civil liberties are either explicitly identified in the Bill of Rights and the U.S. Constitution, or have been established by interpretations through the years by legislatures or the courts.
