American Civil Liberties Union of Hawaii
The American Civil Liberties Union (“ACLU”) is our nation’s guardian of liberty working daily in courts, legislatures and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties that the Constitution and laws of the United States guarantee everyone in this country. In Hawaii since 1965.
The ACLU works to ensure that the government does not violate fundamental constitutional rights including, but not limited to, freedom of speech, association and assembly, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, fair and equal treatment, and privacy. If the rights of society’s most vulnerable members are denied, everyone’s rights are imperiled.
The ACLU of Hawaii network of volunteers and staff deliver services statewide at no cost to the public. We are a private non-profit, non-partisan and do not accept government funds. Our advocacy is made possible primarily through individual donations.
