The ACLU is our nation’s guardian of liberty, working daily in courts, legislatures and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties that the Constitution and laws of the United States guarantee everyone in this country.

Abortion Rights

Criminal Law Reform

Help us end to excessively harsh crime policies that result in mass incarceration and stand in the way of a just and equal society.

Free Speech

Free speech and the right to protest are long-standing protections afforded by the U.S. and Texas constitutions.

Immigrants’ Rights

We are dedicated to reclaiming constitutional and civil rights for all Texans, regardless of immigration status.

LGBT Rights

We are dedicated to securing constitutional and civil rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Texans.

Privacy and Technology

Racial Justice

Voting is the cornerstone of democracy. We work to protect and expand the freedom to vote through legislation, litigation, and voter education.
