  • 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.

LGBT Equality

Everyone in this country has the right to be included in the promises and protections of the Constitution, regardless of their sexual orientation and gender identity.

The ACLU of Colorado works for equal rights and legal protections against discrimination and harassment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people. We are committed to securing marriage equality for same-sex couples and have successfully defended the rights of LGBT parents, not only in custody and visitation arrangements but also by challenging discriminatory laws that restrict the rights of LGBT people to parent. We work to include gender identity in nondiscrimination laws and are also working to make public schools safe and bias-free for LGBT students. We argued a successful suit to defeat Colorado’s discriminatory Amendment 2 all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
