DISCRIMINATION ON THE BASIS OF CLOTHING OR CLUB MEMBERSHIP IS ILLEGAL
Iowa Statutes Section 601A.7 makes it an offense to unfairly and unconstitutionally
deny the use, advantages, facilities, services or privileges of any public
accommodation. Besides criminal penalties, private lawsuits may be brought
for unconstitutional discrimination, Amos vs.. Prom, Inc (D.C. Iowa 1954)
117 F.Supp. 615. 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.
