DISCRIMINATION ON THE BASIS OF CLOTHING OR CLUB MEMBERSHIP IS ILLEGAL
Illinois Statute Section 68.5-102(A) makes it an offense for any person
to deny or refuse to another the full and equal enjoyment of the facilities
of any public place of accommodation. Persons cannot be excluded therefrom
so long as they conduct themselves in a peaceable and orderly manner.
City of Chicago vs.. Corney,.13 Ill.App. 2d 396, 142 N.E. 2d 160 (1957).
In addition, any person whose exercise or enjoyment of rights secured by
the Constitution or laws of the United States has been interfered with,
or attempted to be interfered with may institute and prosecute a civil
action for injunctive and other appropriate equitable relief, including
the award of compensatory monetary damages. The Supreme Court ruled in
the case of Cohen v. California, 403 U.S. 15 (1971) that individuals have
the constitutional right under the First Amendment to wear clothing which
displays writings or designs. A citizen has the right to move about freely
and peaceably in public places, without fear of being discriminately removed
therefrom. Nanez v. Ritger, 304 F. Supp. 354 (ED. WIS.). In addition,
the right of an individual to freedom of association has long been recognized
and protected by the United States Supreme Court Thus, a person's
right to wear clothing of his choice, as well as his right to belong to
any club or organization of his choice is constitutionally protected,
and persons or establishments who discriminate on the basis of clothing
or club membership are subject to lawsuit.
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.
