American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Student Chapter

“The American Civil Liberties Union is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to upholding and protecting the rights and freedoms guaranteed by the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights.” Our ACLU student chapter offers students the opportunity to not only learn about the litigation and legislation surrounding the efforts to protect civil liberties, but to actively participate in such in several ways, such as our permanent seat on the Rhode Island ACLU’s executive board, working directly with an ACLU attorney, and conducting policy analysis.
