Civil rights

Civil rights are the rights that all people in a country have under the law, no matter their race, color, sex, religion, age, or whether they have a disability. Everyone should be treated the same by the law and have equal rights. This includes the right to vote, have a home and a job, get an education, express our ideas, and be protected against unfair treatment.
