    Civil rights include:

    Ensuring peoples' physical integrity and safety.

    Protection from discrimination on grounds such as gender, religion, race, sexual orientation, national origin, age, immigrant status, etc.

    Equal access to health care, education, culture, etc.

    Political rights include:

    Natural justice (procedural fairness) in law (such as the rights of the accused, including the right to a fair trial; due process; the right to seek redress or a legal remedy)

    Individual political freedom, including rights of individuals (freedom of thought and conscience, freedom of speech and expression, freedom of religion, freedom of the press, freedom of movement) and the right to participate in civil society and politics (freedom of association, right to assemble, right to petition, right to vote)

    Civil and political rights comprise the first portion of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (with economic, social and cultural rights comprising the second portion). The theory of three generations of human rights considers this group of rights to be "first-generation rights", and the theory of negative and positive rights considers them to be generally negative rights.

    1. Vote.

    2. Get involved in your community.

    3. Report violations of civil rights to the proper authority.

    4. Learn exactly what your civil rights are.

    5. Help others.

    6. Support civil rights organizations you trust with your time and money.
