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 Amicus Brief at 6th Circuit Opposing Administration’s Efforts to Gut Injunction Barring Federal Imposition of Uniform Bathroom, Locker Room, and Shower Policies Across All Schools and Employers

Today, we submitted an amicus brief to the 6th Circuit, asking the Court of Appeals to affirm the trial court's injunction barring the Biden Administration from implementing faulty "guidance" that the Department of Education and the Chairman of the EEOC had issued to their regulated communities. Those "guidance" documents misread Title IX and Title VII (as well as the Supreme Court's Bostock decision), to require all schools (that receive federal funding) and all employers to allow transgender individuals to use the single-sex bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers provided for the gender with which those individuals identify. Our brief explains how neither the statutes, nor Bostock, do any such thing.

Open Letter for Shareholder to Officers and Directors of Levi Strauss & Co.

September 19th, 2022|Submissions|

Today, on behalf of a concerned Levi's shareholder, the ACR Project demanded that the company publicly retract its illegal, discriminatory training policies. Levi's has chosen to make available to its employees training programs defined by the immutable characteristics of participants (excluding all employees from participation unless they are of -- respectively -- the right race, ethnicity, or sex).  But an employer discriminating in the training it makes available based on race, national origin, and sex violates longstanding federal and state laws.
