American Civil Rights Project

The American Civil Rights Project knows that Americans’ civil rights are individual rights, equally held by all (regardless of whether those rights are understood as a positive enactment of centuries of ratifiers or as the common endowment of all children from nature and nature’s God). The ACR Project exists to protect and, where necessary, restore the primacy of all Americans’ shared civil rights. And we need your help!

Californians for Equal Rights Foundation Petition Stage Amicus Brief (UNC)

December 8th, 2021|Blog, Filings|

On behalf of the Californians for Equal Rights Foundation, we filed with the Supreme Court this amicus brief, supporting the petition for certiorari before judgment filed by Students for Fair Admissions. The Court should take up the UNC case along with the Harvard one (whose consideration remains pending).
