Civil rights are meant to provide all individuals with equal treatment and protect them from discrimination or unfair treatment in various situations including education, employment, housing, public accommodations, and more. Most laws guaranteeing and regulating civil rights originate at the federal level. Many states have also passed similar civil rights laws through their state constitutions. Civil rights are based on certain legally-protected characteristics and the laws can be both complicated and confusing.
