DISCRIMINATION ON THE BASIS OF CLOTHING OR CLUB MEMBERSHIP IS ILLEGAL
Article Il, Section 2 of the Hawaii Constitution states that "all
persons are free by nature and are equal in their inherent and inalienable
rights. Among these rights are the enjoyment of life, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness... the rights cannot endure unless people recognize
their corresponding obligations and responsibilities." Hawaii law
further states that, "Unfair discriminatory practices which deny,
or attempt to deny, a person the full and equal enjoyment of the goods,
services, facilities, privileges, advantages, and accommodations of a
place of public accommodation on the basis of race, sex, color, religion,
ancestry, or handicap are prohibited" Hawaii Statutes Section 483-3.
In Cohen v. California, 403 U.S. 15 (1971), the United States Supreme
Court ruled that American citizens have the First Amendment right to wear
clothing that displays writings or designs. Additionally, the right of
freedom of association has long been recognized and protected by the United
States Supreme Court Accordingly, in Hawaii, an individual's right
to motorcycle attire is constitutionally protected, and individuals or
establishments who discriminate on the basis of motorcycle attire are
subject to lawsuits.
Don't subject yourself to civil and criminal penalties and to expensive
and time consuming lawsuits. Don't discriminate against people wearing
colors or motorcycle attire.
All money from will go directly toward fighting adverse motorcycle legislation.
