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.

Local Elections Matter Phone Bank

Election Day is Tuesday, November 7th.

We need your help to turn out the vote in a key Colorado election.

Douglas County has become a battleground in the fight to protect our core civil liberties.  Special interests are pouring piles of money into this year’s school board election to revive a voucher scheme that was rejected by the Colorado Supreme Court because it illegally funnels taxpayer money to private, religious schools.

The Constitution prohibits using public dollars to communicate a religious message. Vouchers directly fund schools that require religious tests, oaths, and teach a single religious point of view. Voucher-funded schools can reject children with disabilities and discriminate against children who already struggle with being treated differently.

We need help calling ACLU members and likely supporters in Douglas County and urging them to vote.

ACLU of Colorado will host a phone bank on Monday, November 6th from 5pm – 7pm at our office.

Please join us—even if you can’t stay the whole time.

Every vote counts in this close election.
