The American Civil Liberties Union is the leading national organization dedicated to defending and extending civil liberties for all people in this country.

The office is located in Newark. Jeanne LoCicero will be the guest speaker.

The Bill of Rights in the United States Constitution would only be well-meaning promises if people did not fight to protect them. The American Civil Liberties Union is the leading national organization dedicated to defending and extending civil liberties for all people in this country.
We're in the courts every day for hundreds of ordinary people when their rights to equal treatment, fairness, privacy, freedom of speech or religion are threatened. We staunchly support every person's right to make personal decisions - without government interference - about religion, political ideals, reproductive choice, marriage, and other family and lifestyle matters. We are working to make sure that emerging technologies do not diminish our rights to privacy and that freedom of speech is protected in cyberspace.
The ACLU is a leader in the fight for equal opportunity regardless of skin color, gender, or sexual orientation. Since our founding in 1920, the ACLU has learned that liberty must be defended over and over again. That's why ACLU attorneys stand before the United States Supreme Court more often than anyone else except the government itself. And for every case we bring before the Supreme Court, we bring hundreds more nationwide to lower courts and community government boards.
