The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is a group of attorneys and citizens who fight back when they feel the government violates their constitutional rights.
ACLU of KU is a newly formed student chapter dedicated to acting as a voice for University students. The chapter supports causes such as voting rights, LGBTQ rights, immigrants’ rights, racial justice and religious liberty.
“I and my faculty advisor and the rest of the executive board, we decided that we wanted to come together and start a chapter where students can come that are frustrated and that don’t know what to do and have these feelings and all these ideas but they don’t know where to implement them,” ACLU President Sara Muench said. “That’s what the ACLU of KU is here for.”
ACLU at KU will hold a meeting on the first Thursday of May at Capitol Federal Hall.
