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.

Police Chief Town Hall Meeting

Denver Police Chief Robert White promised transparency and open dialogue with the community, particularly in his leadership appointments. Instead, we lost a high-rankling woman of color committed to improved community police relations, and the community has been denied an opportunity for input into recent leadership decisions that significantly impact communities of color.

Please join us in sending a message to Chief White that inclusion, transparency, fairness and gender equality are important values to Denver community residents and Coloradans throughout the state.
