About Us

The American Civil Liberties Union of New Hampshire (ACLU-NH) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan membership organization dedicated to preserving the individual rights and liberties guaranteed in the Bill of Rights and the United States Constitution. The ACLU-NH is one of 53 affiliates of the ACLU nationwide. Today the National ACLU is comprised of more than 1.75 million members.


The ACLU-NH engages with the community in four principal ways:

  • Litigation, representing those whose rights have been violated;
  • Legislative advocacy, challenging laws that infringe on individual freedom and supporting laws which protect or expand our civil liberties;
  • Education campaigns to ensure residents know their rights; and
  • Grassroots organizing, mobilizing people to be advocates for themselves and others. 

The ACLU-NH’s mission stems from our core commitment to equality and reflects our decades-long work to fight discrimination on behalf of all people including those of all faiths; immigrant communities; people of color; women; and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and non-binary people.


We carry out this work statewide, including from our headquarters in Concord, with a full-time seven-person staff assisted by interns, volunteers, cooperating attorneys, and an active Board of Directors.
