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.

Today, the ACLU is standing up for freedom in a clear, unequivocal and effective fashion. From abortion rights, to same-sex marriage, to government-funded religion, the ACLU is on the ground in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands fighting those who would use the power of the government to dictate its citizens’ moral choices.

The ACLU has maintained the position that civil liberties must be respected, even in times of national emergency. The ACLU is supported by annual dues and contributions from its members, plus grants from private foundations and individuals. We do not receive any government funding.

There are many cases and problems of unfairness and injustice which we are simply unable to handle. We receive many requests for assistance each month; therefore, we cannot accept all of the complaints that fall within our guidelines. We must select those which we believe will have the greatest impact on protecting civil liberties.

The increasing volume of emails that we receive weekly forces us to accept written communication on our Complaint Form by regular postal mail and/or via Fax, exclusively.
