About American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Northern California

The ACLU of Northern California is an enduring guardian of justice, fairness, equality, and freedom, working to protect and advance civil liberties for all Californians.

For nearly a century, the ACLU of Northern California has been at the heart of many of the major — and sometimes controversial — struggles for civil liberties in our state. We make sure that Constitutional rights — to free speech, to privacy, to due process — don’t just exist on paper, but also in practice. The ACLU is the first line of defense against threats to civil liberties and we work to ensure these freedoms are guaranteed to every person in this country.
