The Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice exists to “protect the civil rights of all; particularly those at risk of discrimination on the basis of their race, color, sex (including pregnancy, sexual orientation, and gender identity), disability, religion, familial status, national origin, and citizenship status.” The Civil Rights Division is also charged with protecting the civil rights of individuals who are incarcerated and detained, which includes protecting their access to health care and their rights to humane treatment.
