Reasons to give

We stand on principle. The ACLU stands up for the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the rule of law—regardless of the repercussions.

We've been defending freedom in Indiana for more than six decades. Founded in 1953, the ACLU of Indiana has been at the center of nearly every major civil liberties battle in our state. Time after time, our work has played a defining role in protecting and advancing individual rights and the rule of law.

We protect the personal freedoms you cherish. The ACLU protects every person's private decisions about what to believe and say, if and how to worship, who to love, and when and whether or not to have children.

We defend freedom every day all across the United States, in every state. Through our relationship with the National ACLU and state and local affiliates and chapters, the ACLU is involved in thousands of legal cases, advocacy actions and educational initiatives each year that help people stand up for their rights in communities all across the United States.

We've participated in more cases before the U.S. Supreme Court than any other private organization. From defending freedom of speech to protecting reproductive freedom, to expanding legal protection under the law, the ACLU has been involved in one landmark Supreme Court case after another.

Every day, we act on the principle that no one in our country is above the law. The ACLU challenges abuses of power that undermine our democracy and we hold those accountable who break the law and violate the Constitution.

We believe in an America that is both safe and free. There are always those in powerful positions who wrongly insist that we must trade away our fundamental freedoms to secure our safety. No organization challenges that idea more effectively than the ACLU.

We take on politicians and government officials who ignore the Constitution and put liberty at risk. We don't answer to polls or to the whims of the electorate. That's why ACLU legislative advocates and policy experts work tirelessly to change laws and government actions that violate the Constitution. We get out the facts, and when our freedoms are on the line, we mobilize grassroots support to protect our civil liberties.

We educate the next generation of civil libertarians, and the public. Our outreach programs across Indiana and online resources both locally and nationally help thousands understand their constitutional rights and what they must do to protect them.

We challenge intolerance and bigotry wherever we find it. We work to root out any and all attempts to deny people the equal protection under the law that the Constitution guarantees.

We are a citizen-supported organization with supporters in every corner of the state. The ACLU of Indiana's work is sustained by donors and members who play a powerful role in defending freedom by taking action and providing financial support.
