Public Accommodations - Equal Rights

Federal and state laws prohibit discrimination against certain protected groups in businesses and places that are considered "public accommodations"—meaning most businesses or buildings that are open to the general public. With respect to anti-discrimination law, a public accommodation may be either privately owned (such as a retail business) or public (town squares, government buildings, etc.).
