Diversity in the Community

 

American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Kentucky

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Kentucky promotes, protects, and defends individuals’ rights guaranteed by the U.S. and Kentucky Constitutions. One of the ways we accomplish that mission is by litigating cases in Kentucky’s state and federal courts that will have a broad impact on civil liberties, either by setting a legal precedent or by affecting the policies and actions of public officials. Our efforts include providing direct legal representation to individuals in certain cases, and filing amicus (friend-of-the-court) briefs where significant civil liberties are implicated.
