  • 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.

ACLU of Colorado Celebrates Marriage Equality in Colorado

10/7/14

DENVER – The Colorado Supreme Court this morning lifted its stay on the ruling of Adams County District Court Judge C. Scott Crabtree declaring Colorado’s ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional, making that judgment final. The Colorado Attorney General has ordered all 64 county clerks to begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples and licenses are currently being issued throughout the state.

ACLU of Colorado Executive Director Nathan Woodliff-Stanley issued the following statement:

“The American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado is thrilled that the freedom to marry has finally come to Colorado!  This is a wonderful day as all loving couples across the state can now get married and all couples legally married in other states living in Colorado will have the rights and protections of marriage in our state.

“Bringing marriage equality to our state has been one of the ACLU of Colorado’s top priorities for years, and we, along with our partners in the Why Marriage Matters Colorado coalition, are so proud to help bring about this historic victory.

“All individuals deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. The ACLU remains committed to the fight for equality and will not rest until the freedom to marry is real for all loving couples across the country.”
