The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the ACLU Foundation of Colorado became an affiliate of the National ACLU in 1952, as the seventeenth official national affiliate to be formed. The Colorado ACLU focuses on defending free speech and the right to dissent, securing religious liberty, combating racial profiling and discrimination, protecting the right to equal treatment for all people, ensuring the right to fair play in encounters with government, as well as the ability of all people to be secure from interference in private matters.
Today, the Colorado ACLU is a statewide organization of over 11,000 members, working together to defend, protect and extend the civil rights and civil liberties of all people in Colorado. The ACLU (Union) of Colorado is a 501(c)(4), supported through membership dues. The Union works on legislative issues in order to promote civil liberties and prevent their erosion.
The ACLU Foundation of Colorado, as an incorporated 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization to which contributions are tax-deductible, is supported solely through individual donations, including private grants, proceeds from events, and attorneys' fees when we prevail in court. Our dedicated supporters allow the Colorado ACLU to reach out to the public on important issues, to respond to new challenges and to undertake strong, creative, and successful legal, educational and advocacy initiatives.
