  • 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.

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.
