75th Anniversary of the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights Law Against Discrimination “Stop the Hate” Series: The Future of the LAD and NJ Civil Rights
When the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination went into effect in April of 1945, it made New Jersey the first state with a comprehensive anti-discrimination statute since Reconstruction. Since that time, New Jersey has remained at the forefront of ensuring of its citizens’ civil rights by amending the LAD numerous times, adding further protections to keep pace with evolving societal changes. In describing the impact of the LAD, the New Jersey Supreme Court recently said, “[o]ne searches in vain to find another New Jersey enactment having an equivalently powerful statement of purpose.” This presentation will briefly discuss that history and will outline the future of how the LAD could or should expand going forward to address current civil rights issues in New Jersey.
