We at the ACLU of Indiana believe that an important way to protect the Bill of Rights is to make sure that unconstitutional bills never become law. To do that, we maintain a fulltime presence at the Indiana General Assembly and work closely with our parent organization, the American Civil Liberties Union, to make sure that we are on hand to oppose legislation in Congress limiting human liberty.

opinion piece on the issue that was printed in a dozen newspapers in
Indiana in mid-January, 2013, then

We see protecting the Bill of Rights as a do-it-yourself project. Citizens' rights will not be preserved unless the citizens themselves do the work of defending those rights. The muscle we have to flex comes courtesy of our long list of citizen activists
-- the Bill of Rights Lobby -- an ever-growing group of hundreds of Hoosier volunteers who stand ready to visit, call, write, fax or e-mail elected officials when we inform them that there is a threat to freedom.
You can be part of that effort. In fact, we want you to be apart of that effort. Stand with us and join the Bill of Rights Lobby!
