  • 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.

Last year was marked by significant change in Colorado on marriage equality, marijuana legalization, immigration detainers, and reform of the use of solitary confinement.

One of the most important developments in 2014 was the rise of the next generation of civil rights activists. In communities across the state, young people took to the streets by the thousands to protest police brutality and racial bias in law enforcement. In Jefferson County, hundreds of students staged daily walkouts to oppose censorship and to protect the integrity of their education.

At our 2015 Annual meeting, we will celebrate our recent victories, discuss our upcoming challenges and campaigns, and we’ll honor — and hear directly from — the students and young people who organized, spoke out, and demanded change through activism and peaceful protest last year.

All are welcome to this free event, so please bring your family, friends, and neighbors.

Please RSVP here.
