Welcome to the Colorado Rights Blog

Welcome to the Colorado Rights Blog, the new online home of the ACLU of Colorado.

In this space, you’ll find videos, infographics, action alerts, “Know Your Rights” trainings and other informational tools to keep you informed about your rights and how we work to protect them.

On our newly redesigned website, you’ll see more video content, like Out of Sight, Out of Mind, The Story of Sam Mandez, an original short film about a man who spent more than 15 years in solitary confinement and now suffers from debilitating mental illness. The film is part of our ongoing campaign to end the use of solitary confinement for prisoners with mental illnesses.

You’ll also hear more frequently from our staff, our board, our members and volunteers through posts about civil rights issues on the new blog. If you’ve got a question or an idea for a blog post, contact me at jkrieger@aclu-co.org.

Also, be sure to “Like” us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and sign up for our email list.
