  • Tuesday Olson knew her pregnancy was in trouble and tried to access hospital care as soon as possible. But there was a problem: she was in jail. This is her story.
  • It’s time to end the death penalty in Colorado. Family members who lost loved ones to murder speak out against an unjust and broken system.

  • 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.

Sex Ed Visibility Day

We’re in the final push for our comprehensive sex ed bill, HB 1032 – Youth Wellness Act, and we need your support. There are only 2 weeks left in the legislative session, and HB 1032 has several hurdles to clear before it can be signed by the Governor. Time is running out – but our commitment to CO youth remains strong!

This Wednesday, ACLU and Planned Parenthood will be holding a visibility event at the Capitol. Please join us in the rotunda of the Colorado state Capitol on Wednesday, 4/24 from 8 – 9 a.m. We’ll be delivering all the activist letters we’ve been collecting and inviting legislators to come speak with you and take a picture to show their support for #realsexed. The more constituents and students we have show up, the better!

We need to put pressure on our elected officials to see HB 1032 through to the Governor’s desk with funding intact. Otherwise, we will have to start this entire process all over again next year! Colorado youth can’t wait another year.
