Free Lawyers Will Fight For Your Rights

We’ve all heard of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). They have over 300 offices around the country and handle close to 6,000 cases a year. The ACLU has more than 60 staff attorneys who collaborate with at least 2,000 volunteer attorneys in handling cases. They have appeared before the Supreme Court more than any other organization except the U.S. Department of Justice. If you feel that your civil liberties have been violated, they may take your case. The kinds of issues they are most currently active in include: woman’s rights, reproductive freedom, workplace rights, AIDS, arts censorship, capital punishment, children’s rights, education reform, lesbian and gay rights, immigrants’ rights, national security, privacy and technology, prisoners’ rights, and voting rights.
