The ACLU of Indiana can help you if you think your rights have been violated by a government agency or organization, including town government, schools, police officers or the state of Indiana.

Here are a few basic questions to ask yourself if you are unsure about whether or not to submit a legal request with ACLU of Indiana:

  1. Have your civil liberties have been violated by a government entity?
  2. Does your issue concern a right or freedom protected by the U.S. or Indiana Constitutions? (See below for examples.)
  3. Are you the person or party whose constitutional rights have been violated?

  • Freedom of speech - Protesters' Rights
  • Freedom of religion
  • Police misconduct
  • Censorship in public schools or libraries
  • Fairness in school or prison discipline
  • Privacy and other protections from government intrusion
