Every American is protected by a bill of universal rights under the U.S. Constitution. Good & Common was created to help people learn more about what their rights are and how to exercise them.
Good & Common provides resources related to a variety of legal topics, from protesting to immigration to safely interacting with police. In doing so, we hope to support a nation of Americans who are able to understand how to avoid harmful situations and advocate for their community.
Good & Common is led by DeWitt Lacy, a civil rights attorney and Partner with Burris Nisenbaum Curry & Lacy, who has been practicing law in the District and Superior Courts of California for over a decade.
