  • 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.

26. SCOTUS and Life After Roe

With Justice Kennedy’s retirement and Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court there are a lot of anxieties about civil liberties in general, but specifically reproductive rights. On this episode, ACLU of Colorado Reproductive Rights Campaign Coordinator Delana Maynes interviews Reproductive Rights Policy Council Lizzy Hinkley on the real possibility that the Supreme Court could overturn Roe v. Wade. Later we invite special guest Karla Gonzales Garcia, Policy Director at COLOR (Colorado Organization for Latina Opportunity and Reproductive Rights), who will explain why many women are already living in a post-Roe world. But first Delana interviews Executive Director of ACLU of Colorado Nathan Woodliff-Stanley who gives an overview of the most recent Supreme Court term.

Call To Action: Send a message to your senators right now to demand that they get Kavanaugh’s clear position on Roe v. Wade on the record before the confirmation vote. Go to: http://bit.ly/2LCAhxp
