Advocacy & Activism

Social / Political Activism and Civil Rights Advocacy

Dr. Amina continues to champion worthwhile causes, including Civil Rights and Human Rights, especially as concerns equal justice and the rights of children, women and families. For her efforts, she has received several awards and meritorious acknowledgments. As a volunteer, she contributes her time for the veterans, disabled, orphans, homeless, the poor, the incarcerated, victims of crisis and domestic violence and recovered victims of drug and alcohol addiction.

SaLee's personal passions include fighting corruption, which resulted in very serious legal battles against allegedly corrupt employees of government and law enforcement.

Dr. SaLee' Amina's determined efforts resulted in investigation by the Supreme Court of a Judge, investigation by the County Board of Supervisors of jails and police officers, investigation of County prosecutors in California by the District Attorney's office, investigation of a Domestic Violence shelter by the Department of Health and Department of Social Services and an FBI investigation of alleged illegal acts by county employees, all of which had been reported, in writing, by Dr. SaLee Amina, who suffered extreme retaliation as a consequence of her fight for justice, in reporting corruption among government personnel. A rare published opinion (in Lexis Law) explains some of the matters she was confronting, and the retaliatory assaults she endured, as a result. However, the findings of the investigations were published and the recommendations supported the allegations of Dr. SaLee' Amina, which resulted in some cases of disciplinary procedures against the allegedly corrupt officials and employees and a determination of wrongdoing against a Superior Court Judge, who received a written reprimand from the Commission for Judicial Performance of the State of California. Their findings, which were published, validated Dr. SaLee's reports of wide-spread corruption and a policy of negligence, abuse, discrimination, violation of Civil Rights, code of silence, cover up and retaliation against whistle-blowers.

Regarding her legal battles against corruption, a civil certiorari petition to the United States Supreme Court is in progress in a matter of Civil Rights violation by the State of California, three counties and a city within that state and several employees of county and city government. The lawsuit is for $150 million U.S.D., much of which has been committed to establishing ombudsman organizations for the protection of the rights of American citizens and victims of injustice.

Dr. Amina is also a member of numerous organizations for social responsibility and she participates in environmental protection activities and conferences on world peace.

In the past, Dr. SaLee' Amina had been a member of the United States Business Advisory Board, the President's Task Force, the Senatorial Inner Circle, the U.S. Congressional Committee and political Victory Funds and Political Action Committees. She had also been a precinct officer in her native Beverly Hills, California and had been a recipient of the 'Gold Medal of Merit' from U.S. President Ronald Reagan.

Shape History

"We have a responsibility in our time, as others have had in theirs, not to be prisoners of history but to shape history, a responsibility to fill the role of path-finder, and to build with others a global network of purpose and law."
