About First Wednesdays

Since 2006, the ACLU of Indiana has been conducting bimonthly educational panels called First Wednesdays. In 2014, we began offering the events in communities across Indiana. The one-hour conversations focus on civil liberties and constitutional rights. Topics have included free speech, privacy rights, racial justice, LGBTQ rights and much more. In 2012, the Indiana Bar Foundation recognized First Wednesdays with its law-related education award.
