Unacceptable, deep inequities persist in people's ability to get a good education, to purchase affordable insurance, to get a mortgage or loan, or even to have safe drinking water.
It’s time to update the Civil Rights Act to address 21st century discrimination. That's why Rashida Tlaib, poised to represent Michigan's 13th District in the U.S. House of Representatives, plans to introduce the Justice For All Civil Rights Act when the new Congress convenes in early 2019.
The bill would drastically expand civil rights protections.
