Apr. 8-9: ACLU of California Conference & Lobby Day

April 8, 2018 @ 10:30 am
April 9, 2018 @ 4:00 pm

Represent! Reclaim! Realize!

Join hundreds of activists at the state capital to learn about local and statewide campaigns that will advance a progressive agenda in the new year. Our communities may face serious civil liberties threats, but with a diverse population of nearly 38 million people of all races, faiths, sexual orientations, gender identities, and immigration status, California will not waver.

Learn how to build grassroots political power for civil liberties and social justice. Then, lobby your state senator and assemblymember, urging them to pass critical legislation that would protect and expand the civil liberties of all Californians.
