Fiscal Year 2023 Annual Report

A Letter from our Executive Director
In the wake of the country experiencing political unrest and superimposed threats to our rights and freedom, we are working collectively to build the state, region, and nation we want to see.
For the ACLU of Alabama, 2022 has been a year of growth in our office and within our coalitions. Internally, our team and capacity has expanded to accommodate 15 full-time staff members, and externally, our collaborative efforts with other Alabama organizations grow stronger daily. We are more robust, effective, and present as a unified front when facing these increasingly unending attacks against our rights.
This year, in collaboration with our partners, we managed a voter protection hotline, fought for fairer districting for voters in historically disenfranchised Alabama districts, and opposed the construction of more prisons in Alabama. We also committed to striving to guarantee voting rights for all Alabamians, supporting the reform of Alabama’s criminal legal system, and persisting in regaining reproductive freedom statewide.
Together, we’re fighting for a more just and equitable Alabama, and we hope to have your continued support as we move onward in this work.
