It is important that you document and right violations as they occur, assert your rights with businesses and organizations by corresponding with them and asking for remedy, and if remedy is not given, it is important to file reports and complaints through established pathways and government departments, and take legal action if necessary.
Document rights violations
If a business or org violates your rights, complete a notice of discrimination, take a picture, and give to all individuals in violation at the offending business or organization. https://www.thehealthyamerican.org/notice-of-discrimination?mc_cid=39335c1b09&mc_eid=d474cadc5c
Correspond / demand remedy
