Voting Rights

Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy and the fundamental right upon which all our civil liberties rest. Alabama has come a long way since the Jim Crow era, but we are still fighting against the same forces that continue to keep voters of color away from the ballot box. 

Criminal Legal Reform

The ACLU of Alabama seeks an end to policies within the criminal justice system that cause widespread violation of constitutional and human rights and also lead to unprecedented levels of incarceration.

Gender Justice

Elected officials should not legislate what choices an individual can make about their own health, happiness, and safety. Alabama lawmakers are scheming how to interfere in more peoples’ personal lives. The right to make one's own choices is a fundamental aspect of personal autonomy and dignity.

First Amendment Rights

Alabama lawmakers are eager to criminalize and silence those who disagree with them or make them uncomfortable. The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution protects every Alabamian from this government overreach. 

Racial Justice

The ACLU Racial Justice Program aims to preserve and extend constitutionally guaranteed rights to people who have historically been denied their rights on the basis of race.
