  • 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.

Speakers Bureau: Kathleen Hynes on “Immigrant Rights”

The Constitution guarantees the fundamental rights of due process and equal protection to every person in this country, regardless of their immigration status.  Join Kathleen Hynes, Ph.D., volunteer speaker for the ACLU of Colorado, for an interactive presentation on Immigrant Rights.

Upholding the rights of the politically disenfranchised is vital; when the government has the power to deny legal rights and due process to one group of people it puts everyone’s rights in danger. The ACLU of Colorado works to uphold the due process and equal protection clauses embodied in our Constitution and Bill of Rights, which apply to every “person,” and are not limited to U.S. citizens. The talk will highlight current immigration issues in Colorado and nationally, including ICE detainers, sanctuary cities, and court cases.
