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.

It’s more important than ever for all citizens to be prepared and know how to assert their constitutionally protected rights when dealing with law enforcement.

The ACLU of Colorado will present a Know Your Rights Training on June 12th from 11-12:15 p.m. The training will be taught by ACLU speaker Kathleen Hynes, Ph.D. and will provide information and simple steps, based on constitutional protections and criminal case law, for handling interactions with police and other forms of law enforcement.

Dr. Hynes will expose commonly believed myths and teach the realities about our constitutionally protected rights. Participants in the training will learn how to keep their cool and assert their constitutional rights, if necessary, when stopped by law enforcement, as well as how to report instances of police misconduct.
