ACLU

AMERICAN CIVIL LIBERTIES UNION
New York City, NY

Mission

For almost 100 years, the ACLU has worked to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States.

What grantmakers are saying

The ACLU is the premier protector of first amendment rights and the Bill of Rights in the USA. They stand for supporting these rights and even defend those who would deny these rights to others. This is the true mark of a democracy. Particularly now when racial profiling, women's rights, children's rights, immigrant's rights are all under attack, they remain active and vigilant.
