The ACLU of Oregon works in courts, the Legislature and communities to expand civil rights and civil liberties such as freedoms of press, speech, assembly and religion; and the rights to due process, equal protection and privacy.
Bottom line for Portland:
Last year, the ACLU of Oregon responded to 2,500 Oregonians who felt their rights were violated. The ACLU takes on a range of civil-liberties issues, from challenging the Muslim Ban and securing policy changes that increase police accountability to defending against an anti-abortion initiative.
"Being detained by ICE is frightening, but Francisco Rodriguez’s family and priest contacted the ACLU for support. He is grateful for the ways the ACLU and other community groups successfully mobilized Oregonians to demand his release." —Francisco J. Rodriguez Dominguez, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipient
