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.

Fighting the Criminalization of Homelessness: A Discussion with ACLU of Colorado at CU Law School

Across Colorado, police use city ordinances to target, harass, and ultimately displace people who are homeless or living in extreme poverty.  Join ACLU of Colorado Executive Director Nathan Woodliff-Stanley and Legal Director Mark Silverstein for a report from the front lines in the battle against criminalization of homelessness and poverty in Colorado. Woodliff-Stanley and Silverstein will discuss the many ways that litigation and public advocacy can be used to fight back against laws that criminalize our most vulnerable communities.
