Civil Rights at 50 LogoThe Civil Rights at 50 campaign is led by the Equal Justice Society, a national civil rights organization heightening consciousness on race in the law and popular discourse. EJS is working to fully restore the constitutional protections of the Fourteenth Amendment by replacing the Intent Doctrine with a Disparate Impact standard that addresses contemporary forms of racism. http://equaljusticesociety.org
