The area of civil rights focuses on an individual's civil liberties. Civil liberties are personal, natural rights, guaranteed and protected by the United States and California Constitutions. If one person, group or entity interferes with someone's civil rights, this is against the laws of both the Unites States and California.  Examples of a person's civil rights include the right to be free from an unlawful arrest, to be free from unlawful stops and seizures, to be free from police brutality and to be free from discrimination. Often, a person’s civil rights may be violated because a police officer, acting under the color of authority, has violated such authority and has committed misconduct to you or a spouse, or has acted with excessive force or brutality. Examples of such acts by a police officer include an unjustified arrest, shooting, or force resulting in physical harm to someone.

Additional examples of rights to which individuals have an inherent right are freedom of speech and assembly, as well as the right to equality. Discrimination occurs when the civil rights of an individual are denied or interfered with because of their membership in a particular group or class. One cannot be discriminated against based on a person's race, sex, religion, age, physical limitation, national origin, and sexual orientation.
