  • 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.

Reproductive Freedom

The ACLU protects individuals’ right to make informed decisions free from government interference about whether and when to become a parent, and to be given access to the full range of reproductive health care.

Through litigation, public education and legislative advocacy, the ACLU of Colorado strives to ensure that everyone in our society has the resources to make responsible decisions about forming intimate relationships and building secure and healthy families. We seek to protect access to sex education, birth control, prenatal care, and the option of abortion, and oppose all efforts to erode those rights. In recent years, Colorado has unfortunately become a prominent battleground for reproductive rights, as religious extremists have attempted to force their beliefs on the rest of the state through the so-called “Personhood” ballot initiatives. The ACLU of Colorado worked tirelessly to defeat these attempts in 2008, 2010, and will do so again in 2014.
