A cornerstone of our society, equal protection of the law is guaranteed by the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments and reinforced by hundreds of local, state and federal civil rights laws. The ACLU fights to ensure that no one is subjected to unconstitutional discrimination based on race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, age, disability, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, gender identity, or citizenship status.
