Can We Help?
The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana seeks to promote, protect and
defend the rights, liberties and freedom guaranteed by the U.S. and Indiana
Constitutions to all people in Indiana. Our Constitutions authorize and limit
governmental actions. For the ACLU of Indiana to become involved in your
complaint, there must be some governmental action about which you complain. The
“government” is a broad term that can include various agencies and
organizations, including municipalities,
public schools and the police.
Among the issues we work on are freedom of speech; freedom of religion; government-sponsored religious activities; privacy; discrimination based on race, gender, sexual orientation or disability; police misconduct; censorship in schools or libraries; fairness in application of school discipline; workplace privacy; access to government documents; inhumane jail and prison conditions and other issues of fair treatment by government.
In general, we do not handle cases that involve such things as:
- landlord-tenant disputes
- general disputes between employees and employers
- criminal prosecutions
- child custody

The ACLU is neither a government agency nor a general legal services
organization. We have limited resources and staff and are unable to pursue every
case that comes to our attention. All requests for legal assistance must be
submitted in writing. All requests for legal assistance must be submitted in
writing, and can be submitted
here or by calling
our intake line at 317-635-4059, ext. 102.
