Having civil rights is part of being an American. You have the right to speak truth to power. You have the right to not be persecuted by the government for your race, age, sex or religion. If the government violates these rights, it is your duty as a citizen to hold it accountable.

What has to happen for a civil rights violation to occur:
- First, the violation has to be made by a government entity, or by an individual acting on behalf of a government entity. This can include the local, county, state or federal government.
- Second, the action had to constitute a violation of your constitutional rights. Were you denied your right to due process? Were you prevented from speaking at a municipal meeting? Were you pulled over by the cops because of your race?
- Third, the action had to have caused you some type of harm. Wrongful arrest or use of excessive force by police officers would qualify. Sometimes, police officers misuse their authority to arrest individuals for personal vendettas. Other times, simply being deprived of a civil liberty is enough.
In New Jersey, racial profiling is a common civil rights violation. Too many individuals are pulled over on the New Jersey Turnpike just because of their race. But violations can involve age, religion, sex and sexual orientation as well.
