As an ADVOCATESupport the cause…

The American Civil Liberties Union is our nation’s guardian of liberty, working daily in courts, legislatures and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties that the Constitution and laws of the United States guarantee everyone in this country.

We protect American values. In many ways, the ACLU is the nation’s most conservative organization. Our job is to conserve America’s original civic values – the Constitution and the Bill of Rights – and defend the rights of every man, woman and child in this country.

We’re not anti-anything. The only things we fight are attempts to take away or limit your civil liberties, like your right to practice any religion you want (or none at all); or to decide in private whether or not to have a child; or to speak out – for or against – anything at all; or to be treated with equality and fairness, no matter who you are.

We’re there for you. Rich or poor, straight or gay, black or white or brown, urban or rural, pious or atheist, American-born or foreign-born, able-bodied or living with a disability. Every person in this country should have the same basic rights. And since our founding in 1920, we’ve been working hard to make sure no one takes them away.

We continue to tackle the thorniest issues confronting our nation –  racism, sexism, homophobia, religious intolerance, and censorship. The ACLU‘s mission remains realizing the promise of the Bill of Rights for all and expanding the reach of its guarantees to new areas.
