mission of the ACLU is to preserve all of these protections
First Amendment rights-freedom of speech, association
and assembly. Freedom of the press, and freedom of religion
supported by the strict separation of church and state.
right to equal protection under the law - equal treatment
regardless of race, sex, religion or national origin.
right to due process - fair treatment by the government
whenever the loss of your liberty or property is at stake.
right to privacy - freedom from unwarranted government
intrusion into your personal and private affairs.
work also to extend rights to segments of our population
that have traditionally been denied their rights. If the
rights of society's most vulnerable members are denied,
everybody's rights are imperiled.
