Question

The Progression and Regression of Civil Rights

The 1960s marked a period of civil rights that were expanded

in the 1970s. However, in the late 1980s, these efforts seemed to take a different direction, with a more conservative Supreme Court.

Given the current composition of the Supreme Court:


·      Do you think civil rights continue to be reversed or expanded for certain groups? Support your claim with evidence from the scholarly or research literature.

·      Which groups may benefit from the current Supreme Court, and which groups may suffer? You may have to review current events to answer this part of the question.

·      Identify two different groups whose civil rights are suffering current infringement but may not be receiving public attention.

·      How does the NASW Policy Statement on Civil Liberties and Social Justice address these discrimination and equity issues?
