The ACLU of Oregon works in courts, the Legislature and communities to expand civil rights and civil liberties that are fundamental to free people: freedoms of press, speech, assembly and religion; and the rights to due process, equal protection and privacy.
Bottom Line for Portland
In 2017, the ACLU of Oregon responded to 2,100 persons who felt their rights were violated. The ACLU takes on the toughest civil rights and civil liberties issues, whether it be protecting LGBTQ youth from harassment or challenging Portland police’s response to protests.
“The ACLU of Oregon stood with me when my rights were violated. With their support, I was able to start positive changes in the North Bend School District. I hope these changes can also bring awareness to LGBTQ youth issues and can show students they are not powerless in the face of discrimination or harassment.”
