  • 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.

Enrique’s Journey at Su Teatro

The ACLU of Colorado is proud to promote Enrique’s Journey, a new theatrical production from Su Teatro, showing September 18 – October 4.

Enrique’s Journey is based on Sonia Nazario’s intrepid reporting for the Los Angeles Times that won two Pulitzer Prizes — this astonishing story puts a human face on the ongoing debate about immigration reform in the United States.

This poignant and provocative play recounts the unforgettable quest of a Honduran boy looking for his mother, eleven years after she is forced to leave her starving family to find work in the United States.

Braving unimaginable peril, often clinging to the sides and tops of freight trains, Enrique travels through hostile worlds full of thugs, bandits, and corrupt cops. But he pushes forward, relying on his wit, courage, hope, and the kindness of strangers.

Thursday-Saturday, Sept. 18- Oct. 4, 7:30 p.m. Matinee: Sunday, September 28, 2 p.m. $20 general admission; $17 students/seniors. Special discount for ACLU members, please inquire at 303-296-0219 or at the box office.
