Race Discrimination

Assertively Fighting for the Rights of Our Clients

Race Discrimination

New York City, is a vibrant and diverse metropolis where people from all walks of life converge in pursuit of the American dream.

Race discrimination is an unfortunate reality that persists in various facets of daily life in New York. From employment discrimination to housing disparities, unequal access to quality education, and biased law enforcement practices, it affects individuals from marginalized racial backgrounds in profound ways. While progress has been made in recent years, the struggle against racial discrimination is far from over.

Housing Discrimination

In the realm of housing, New York law prohibits discrimination based on race, including discriminatory practices in renting, selling, and financing housing. The Fair Housing Act and the NYSHRL mandate that individuals have the right to live in a housing environment free from racial discrimination. Mark David Shirian P.C. can assist clients in filing complaints with the New York City Commission on Human Rights or pursuing legal action against discriminatory landlords or property managers.

Educational Inequalities

Education is often seen as the great equalizer, but racial disparities persist in New York's schools. Minority students are disproportionately affected by underfunded schools, unequal access to advanced coursework, and harsh disciplinary practices. Mark David Shirian P.C. can engage in advocacy to promote equitable funding for schools and provide legal representation to families seeking to challenge discriminatory practices within the education system.

Police Practices and Criminal Justice Reform

The criminal justice system in New York, like many parts of the United States, faces issues of racial bias and profiling. African Americans and Latinos are disproportionately arrested, convicted, and sentenced compared to their white counterparts. Mark David Shirian P.C. can work on criminal justice reform initiatives, support individuals who have been wrongfully convicted, and advocate for greater transparency and accountability in law enforcement agencies.

Race discrimination is a persistent issue in New York City that affects people's lives in various ways.
