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.

Tea Series

Join the ACLU of Colorado’s T.E.A. (Training Emerging Activists) series! This educational skills workshop is for youth between 15 – 21 years old. You’ll receive a comprehensive, educational briefing on today’s most pressing civil liberties and civil rights issues like student rights, LGBTQ rights, racial justice, immigrant rights, free speech and more. But we’ll do more than just talk. You’ll also be trained on how to take action to implement change and fight for justice. Whether you’re looking to make change across the country or in the classroom, the T.E.A series provides a space for education, collaboration, and action.

The August series is focused on Student Rights so you can return to class with the knowledge you need to protect your rights in school. ACLU-CO expert staff will facilitate this training.

This is a beginner workshop with no previous knowledge necessary. Just bring your interest in civil liberties and civil rights.
Pizza and RTD bus passes provided.

Workshop is from 4 pm – 5:30 pm
