American Civil Liberties Union

Country: United States

For nearly 100 years, the ACLU has been a guardian of liberty, working in courts, legislatures and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties that the Constitution and the laws of the United States guarantee everyone in the country.

Whether it’s achieving full equality for lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender people, establishing new privacy protections for our digital age of widespread government surveillance, ending mass incarceration or preserving the right to vote or to have an abortion, the ACLU takes up the toughest civil liberties cases and issues to defend all people from government abuse and overreach. With more than a million members, activists and supporters, the ACLU is a nationwide organization that fights tirelessly in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and Washington DC to safeguard everyone’s rights. Principled and non-partisan, it brings together the country’s largest team of public interest lawyers, lobbyists, communication strategists, and members and activists to advance equality, fairness and freedom, especially for the most vulnerable in society.
