Work for the ACLU!
For nearly 100 years, the ACLU has been our nation’s guardian of liberty, working in courts, legislatures, and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States. Whether it is ending mass incarceration, achieving full equality for the LGBT community, establishing new privacy protections for our digital age, or preserving the right to vote or the right to have an abortion, the ACLU takes up the toughest civil liberties cases and issues to defend all people from government abuse and overreach. With more than a million members, activists, and supporters, the ACLU is a nationwide organization that fights tirelessly in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and Washington, D.C., for the principle that every individual's rights must be protected equally under the law, regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability or national origin.
During the House State Affairs Committee meeting on February 19, 2014, there was a suggestion from Representative Wick that the ACLU supported a bill in Oregon which HB 1150 has been modeled after. It should be noted that the ACLU of Oregon in 1999 was neutral on the bill and subsequently opposed amendments to the law. In 2005 and again in 2011 when the ACLU testified against amendments, it made it clear that it opposed the underlying law for a variety of reasons including religious freedom.
