Are you interested in learning more about the work of the ACLU? Do members of your organization have questions about a civil liberties issue?
Members of our Speakers Bureau give presentations to students, community organizations, service organizations, professional associations and a variety of other groups. The presentation topics are as current as today's headlines. Our speakers are lawyers, educators, members of the ACLU Board of Directors and other experts in civil liberties. Speakers talk about current cases and controversies or about the general work and history of the ACLU.

To reserve a speaker, send us an email request with the following information:
Three weeks advance notice is generally needed to schedule the proper speaker. Please include several possible dates & times; the location; audience size, type and age-range; and your preferred discussion format. The more you tell us, the better we can match your request.
