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.

Colorado Equal Pay Day 2012

Equal Pay Day is Tuesday, April 17, 2012. This date symbolizes how far into 2012 women must work to earn what men earned in 2011. The ACLU of Colorado joins with others including 9to5, the Women's Foundation of Colorado and Coloradans for Fair Pay in co-sponsoring two important events for Equal Pay Day 2012.

Wear the color red (to show that women and people of color are still in the red when it comes to pay) and join us at a Daytime Rally at 12:00 pm, April 17, Auraria Campus, Tivoli Commons. 900 Auraria Parkway, Denver.

Then, at 5:30 pm,  April 17, attend an Evening Social at The Living Room. 1055 Broadway, Denver, to celebrate our progress and look forward to realizing our goal of fair pay for all.
