GETTING UNCLE SAM TO ENFORCE YOUR CIVIL RIGHTS
MORE HELP —LEGAL ACTION
It may be necessary to bring a lawsuit to enforce your rights. However, if an administrative procedure has been set up to deal with a particular problem, such as employment discrimination, courts may require you to exhaust that process before a suit can be filed.
For legal assistance, you may contact your local legal aid society or bar association. See a listing of the U.S. Bar Associations. For private groups that can assist you, see the Selected Private Organizations section.
