Coronavirus Update - Preserving Civil Liberties

Attorney General William Barr has released a memo discussing the importance of preserving Civil Rights during the COVID-19 pandemic. As he has said, the Constitution is not suspended during a crisis. 

I believe that includes our First Amendment right to peaceably assemble, to petition our government for redress of grievance, the right to practice religion and the right not to be denied our liberty or property without due process of law. 

I want to encourage you to read Attorney General Barr’s memo, which can be viewed here.  

Additionally, you can file a complaint with The Civil Rights Division of the United States Department of Justice if you believe that recent actions by state and local entities are violating the Constitution. 

And I want you to know that our office will assist you in any way we can to assure your complaint gets the attention it deserves.  If you are a constituent requiring assistance, please call my office at 916-786-5560
