Change happens at the speed of trust. Join our growing network of SoCal activists at the forefront of change.

The ACLU SoCal has long defended our fundamental rights outlined in our Constitution. These include the right to freedom of speech and assembly, the right to religious freedom, due process of law, equality before the law, and the right to privacy. We recognize that these rights have not been afforded to all communities.

Your activism is a key component to ensuring that these rights are extended to everyone.
