  • 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.

Denver Law Enforcement Accountability Town Hall

Please join us for this community-driven planning process to decide how we would like to move forward together in calling for reform of Denver's law enforcement agencies. While vague promises of review and policy changes have been made at various times by mayoral candidates and law enforcement leaders, the ACLU believes that truly effective reform must come from the community. We don’t want a seat at law enforcement’s table, we’re inviting them to ours. Local organizations and community leaders are invited to imagine a safe, free and respectful Denver, and talk about what steps we need to take to get there

RSVP to Erik Maulbetsch at We will send you details of the meeting, including our location which is currently TBD.
