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.

Fifth Annual Latino Advocacy Day

February 27th and 28th marks the dates of the Fifth Annual Latino@ Advocacy Day (LAD)!

LAD was created to provide advocacy and lobby training and briefings on current policy issues such as civil rights/economic justice, the environment, education, immigration and healthcare by and for Latinas and Latinos in Colorado. By the end of the event, participants learn about policy issues important to them, meet with their legislators and take a direct role in the policy making process.

Over 200 Latinas/os from throughout Colorado have participated each year since 2007.
The prime focus this year will be on the state budget crisis’ impact on the Latino community.
