Civil Rights Resources


The Costanzo Law Firm has fought and will continue to fight for the civil rights of the Black community. Although we specialize in discrimination specifically in the workplace, we would like to take this opportunity to listen to our community of followers and friends to offer support in any way we can. We will share useful resources for addressing the historical, current, and ongoing tensions faced by our communities. Please feel free to send us any additional information or local protests and community gatherings and we will happily share them with you all. In solidarity. #BlackLivesMatter.
