Northern Colorado

Welcome to the home page for the Northern Colorado ACLU, representing ACLU members from Larimer and Weld Counties and the surrounding areas. We’re glad you dropped by! You’ll find news and information here about who we are and what we do. Let us know what you think, and if you want to get involved, contact us, or come to one of our meetings or events. We meet every second Saturday of the month at 11:00am at the Front Range Community College Student Union. 

We serve as a regional watchdog for civil liberties, seeking to correct unconstitutional government policies or actions. This can mean advocating for the rights of protestors at public events, or hosting public forums on pressing civil liberties issues. Our goal is always to raise public awareness of policies or practices that infringe or suppress our Constitutional rights.

Although a local ACLU chapter like ours does not represent clients or file lawsuits –only the state ACLU office can threaten or conduct litigation– our chapter has had great success with many advocacy efforts that do not require litigation.
