Welcome to Civil Rights

Here you can get some information on all things about civil rights .

In New Zealand Civil and political rights are a class of rights that extend to the protection of peoples' physical integrity; procedural fairness in law; protection from discrimination based on gender, religion, race, sexual orientation, etc; individual freedom of belief, speech, association, and the press; and political participation.

Treat others as you wish to be treated is a fair way to look at it. Whether you want to do a Yoga Class or go to Church on the weekend . That is your Civil Right.
