Defense of Civil Rights and Liberties

The American Civil Liberties Foundation of DE defends the First Amendment rights of freedom of speech, association and assembly; freedom of the press; and freedom of religion. We correct constitutional violations and advance civil rights and liberties through legal analysis and advocacy; legal action in the courts; promotion of policy change at all levels of government; and community organizing, outreach and education. We also assume the critical responsibility of advising the people of Delaware of their civil rights.
