  • 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.

Death Penalty Lobby Day

We need you to end the death penalty. For months, activists across Colorado have been writing postcards to legislators asking them to end the death penalty.

On Tuesday, January 14, join us for a pivotal day of action as we converge at the capitol to deliver the postcards and speak with our representatives to advance civil liberties and end the death penalty. Over breakfast, hear from legislators that champion repeal, receive a lobby training and share why you support an end to this broken system. Then, join us at the capitol to engage in the legislative process, meet with your elected officials and hold legislators accountable.


Join us and ask our legislators to end the death penalty.

Tuesday, January 14, 8:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.

The death penalty is an expensive, ineffective, and unjust government program that risks making irreversible mistakes by executing innocent people, delays justice for victims’ families, and wastes millions of dollars that could save lives and protect the public.

158 countries and 24 states no longer execute their own people. With your help, Colorado will be next.

Thank you for joining us in this fight!
