The ACLU fights for civil liberties and believes they must always be respected, even in times of national emergency. The ACLU works in the Courts, in Congress, and at the grassroots level to defend the Constitution wherever it is threatened.
The ACLU of Michigan’s mission remains realizing the promise of the Bill of Rights for all and expanding the reach of its guarantees to new areas. Through a variety of channels — public education, advocacy, organizing, and litigation — the ACLU is the premier civil rights organization in this country, earning widespread respect and admiration for its consistent defense of constitutionally based principles. The ACLU of Michigan is committed to supporting this message within this fair state.
Rich or poor; straight or gay; black, white, or brown; urban or rural; pious or atheist; American-born or foreign-born; able-bodied or living with a disability; every person in this country has the same basic rights. For 90 years, the ACLU has been working diligently to ensure that no one takes those rights away.
