Rashida Tlaib on Civil Rights

 

 


Will propose new Civil Rights Act, Justice for All

On her campaign website, Tlaib said the new act will end the use of racial profiling by police and other law enforcement authorities. The Act will also ensure that criminal justice polices and laws--such as the disproportionate sentencing provisions between crack and powder cocaine--are designed and˙implemented without disproportionately impacting communities of color and other protected classes.˙

Supports fighting discrimination with new Civil Rights Act

Tlaib is serious about structural change. She is determined to move beyond resistance and usher in a new era of progressive governance--one in which civil-rights protections are not merely defended. They will be enhanced. When she takes office, Tlaib says, she will "propose legislation to drastically expand U.S. civil rights protections to cover discriminatory impacts, in addition to discriminatory intent."

Title IX creates incentives to ignore gender discrimination

On July 11, Tlaib announced that she would seek changes to the federal Civil Rights Act if elected. These changes included making it easier for plaintiffs to sue using disparate impact claims, changing Title IX (which she said "creates incentives" for officials to ignore gender discrimination), and decreasing corporations' ability to use mandatory arbitration. She said the disparate impact changes could allow lawsuits related to a number of issues that affect poor communities of color, including redlining for bank loans and insurance coverage, the use of credit scores to determine loan qualifications, and low-quality infrastructure in schools. Tlaib said she developed her proposal after listening to the problems that community members most frequently discussed.
