  • Tuesday Olson knew her pregnancy was in trouble and tried to access hospital care as soon as possible. But there was a problem: she was in jail. This is her story.
  • It’s time to end the death penalty in Colorado. Family members who lost loved ones to murder speak out against an unjust and broken system.

  • 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.

Celebrating Trans Voices

Join us on March 31, Trans Day of Visibility, for a powerful event lifting up the trans community of Colorado.

Youth Celebrate Diversity, One Colorado, the ACLU of Colorado, The GLBT Community Center of Colorado and the University of Denver are coming together to host Celebrating Trans Voices: Narratives, Reflections and Building Alliances.

The afternoon event will feature three distinct and compelling conversations that educate and inspire:

– Listen to a panel of high school, college and graduate trans students share their experiences in school and college
– Hear from Laila Ireland, transgender veteran and activist who served for 12 years in the US Army
– Join Rep. Brianna Titone, the first trans legislator elected in Colorado’s history, in identifying actions allies can take to support trans people

This event is designed for people from all walks of life to join us, hear about the challenges faced and successes won by the transgender community in Colorado, and learn how you can become an ally for trans people today.

This event is open to the public and welcomes everyone. Tickets for the event are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. A portion of all proceeds will be donated to a charity serving Colorado’s transgender community.
