Freedom of Expression & Religion

The First Amendment guarantees all Americans the freedoms of speech, press, religion, assembly, and protects their right to petition the government.

Since 1952, the ACLU of Colorado has worked to preserve Coloradans’ fundamental First Amendment rights. We work for the preservation of free speech in all arenas, including the internet, schools, parades, and political rallies. In advance of the 2008 Democratic National Convention, we filed a groundbreaking lawsuit against Denver and the Secret Service seeking to protect the rights of those who wished to publicly assemble and express their views during the convention. We advocate for the free exercise of religion and the prevention of excessive entanglement of government and religion, including opposition to spending taxpayer money on religious activities, such as tuition tax credits for religious education.
