Fighting Discrimination

Racial bias in the criminal justice system and educational inequalities remain as obstacles to a just society. Advancing the cause of civil rights for communities of color continues to be a core part of our efforts.

The ACLU fights discriminatory practices in many arenas – challenging racial profiling practices on San Diego’s and Imperial’s highways and roads, ensuring that any police shootings involving racial minorities are thoroughly and independently investigated to make an unbiased determiniation of criminal liability, fighting for the preservation of affirmative action policies in public education, advocating for the rights of exploited immigrant workers, and much more.
