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!

ACR Project Files with Supreme Court Merits Amicus Brief on Behalf of CFER Foundation in SFFA’s Litigation Against Harvard and UNC
