ACLU-TN Goes to the Movies

 


The American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee has protected constitutional rights in Tennessee for nearly 50 years—winning victories on battlegrounds ranging from the courtroom to the superintendent’s office to the Tennessee Capitol. Indeed, many of our triumphs defending constitutional rights over the years have come through our extensive legislative lobbying program.

During the legislative session, ACLU-TN is down at the Capitol every week, working hard to pass proactive legislation to expand your civil liberties and to stop measures that would take away your freedoms.

Our legislative priorities in 2015 are:

  • Criminal justice reform, including challenging racial profiling, reducing over-incarceration, challenging the school-to-prison pipeline, and stopping law enforcement's unfair seizure of property for their own profit;
  • Voting rights, such as increasing access to the ballot box;
  • Reproductive freedom, including fighting laws intended to coerce or shame women when they are making personal, private decisions about their own health care; and
  • LGBT equality, ensuring fair treatment of all Tennesseans, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
In our own state and beyond, from the Sixth Circuit to the Supreme Court, communities, families, and individuals are calling for change. Join the fight to advance social justice and expand civil liberties and civil rights in Tennessee.

Now is the time for us to work together to foster a Tennessee that embodies liberty and justice for all.
