  • One year ago, thousands of Coloradans marched in a historic display of resistance. At the ACLU of Colorado we carried that spirit throughout the year, fighting on many fronts for civil liberties. We won’t stop now.

  • By canceling DACA, Trump has put 800,000 young people at risk of losing their jobs and being deported from the only country they know as home. Passing the bipartisan Dream Act would protect them. We asked four Dreamers why the Dream Act is important to them and their future.

  • James Fisher spoke at the ACLU of Colorado Bill of Rights Dinner about how he and the ACLU are working together to stop the criminalization of poverty for the thousands of Coloradans who are trapped in debtors’ prisons.

  • Our membership has quadrupled in the last six months, making it possible to do more than ever to protect civil rights and civil liberties in Colorado. Thank you to all our new members, supporters, and donors, and the ones who’ve been with us for years.

ACLU at the Capitol

Hi ACLU Members and Activists,

Due to serious concerns about the weather and out of an abundance of caution, we are rescheduling lobby day to April 3rd at 8:00 a.m. at The First Baptist. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Please reach out to us if you have any questions.

Please join us on Wednesday, April 3 for ACLU at the Capitol, a day of advocacy and action. ACLU of Colorado has an ambitious legislative agenda this year, and we need your help to make it happen.

Meet with your lawmakers and encourage them to improve our criminal system, pass comprehensive sex ed, and make Colorado a welcoming place for immigrants and refugees.

We’ll provide breakfast in the morning and a full training on how to talk to legislators about our priority bills. Then, we’ll team up and head over to the Capitol for lobbying meetings. Afterwards, we’ll meet back for lunch and a recap of the day.

Talking directly with legislators is one of the most important ways for us to win on our issues and to build up long-term champions for civil rights and civil liberties in the Colorado legislature.

You must register to attend: https://go.peoplepower.org/event/action_attend/18416?nr=1&akid=.3331.huJQWf

Thank you for your advocacy!
