Colorado Rights Blog


  • 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 Progressive Movie Night

Join the ACLU of Colorado — and members of the Student Chapter of the ACLU at the University of Denver — for a FREE  Progressive Movie Night, featuring the film, "William Kunstler:  Disturbing the Universe," the film about the self-professed "wild-haired, radical civil rights attorney" whose defense, along with the ACLU, of the Mississippi Freedom Riders helped earn him the title "most hated lawyer in America."

The film event, which includes snacks, will be in Room 165 of the Sturm College of Law, 2235 E. Evans Ave., Denver 80210.
