Social Justice Movements
New York Employment Law Attorneys Fighting Against Inequities
In an ideal society, all people would have access to the same rights, privileges, and treatment. Unfortunately, despite the advancements we have made throughout the years, we do not yet live in this ideal society. Many people are still often oppressed, discriminated against, and treated differently because of who they are or what they believe. The disparities apparent in many communities leave certain populations without access to the resources they need to flourish. Denying people equity in wealth, health, and various opportunities can have adverse physical and psychological consequences. If left untreated, these ills can enforce the cycle of inequality and impact future generations.
Social justice is the theory that everyone, no matter their race, sex, national origin, or religion, deserves access to the same rights and opportunities. At Nisar Law Group, P.C., we promote social justice and advocate for the interests of those who have been oppressed and unjustly treated. And while our practice focuses on employment law, we recognize that mistreatment is a systemic issue that must be addressed. The thoughts and ideas people hold within the community, seep into the workplace, where they manifest as negative actions against others, affecting their jobs, livelihood, and safety. By upholding the rights of victims of such treatment and holding employers accountable for offenses against others, we fight for equality.
If you have been mistreated by your employer or a colleague, you may have the right to take legal action against them. To discuss your situation, call our New York employment law attorney at (646) 760-6493 or contact us online today.

We Support Social Justice Movements
Recently, various social justice movements have emerged, or gained increased momentum, that expose the unjust treatment of people of different races and religions, as well as genders and sexualities. With the proliferation of social media, many of these movements have gone online (and generated trending hashtags) to open the conversation of the injustices suffered by many of the people living in today's society. People throughout the country – and around the globe – have posted videos, images, and stories, which have helped people connect with others who have had similar experiences, reminding them that they're not alone. These campaigns have also helped raise awareness to bring about a compassionate understanding of the ills still present in society and the need for action.
Although fundamentally, these social justice movements are similar – seeking equality for all – we must also recognize their focus on each group. To lump all campaigns together would be a disservice, as it would ignore the unique plights of diverse groups of people.
At Nisar Law Group, P.C., we recognize that standing up for what's right is not always easy. This is especially true when maltreatment occurs in the workplace, as speaking out against something that is widely accepted or overlooked can mean the loss of a job, income, and the ability to support oneself. But, we also understand that to affect change, we must fight policies, practices, and systems that perpetuate inequalities and discrimination. That is why we provide the high-quality legal representation victims need to seek the justice they deserve.
We also do not condone any actions or behaviors that further racist or prejudiced ideas against Islam and Muslims.
