This Center will redouble the ACLU's commitment to the premise that each person in America — regardless of gender, sexual orientation, or chosen beliefs — is sovereign over her/his life and body.
Reproductive Freedom
The ACLU works to secure a world that respects everyone’s right to form intimate relationships and to decide whether and when to have children. With reproductive freedom comes opportunity: opportunity to build strong families and to enjoy a productive and meaningful life. Through litigation, advocacy, and public education, we strive to ensure that our government respects and supports reproductive freedom for all.
LGBT Rights
Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgendered people are not legally protected from discrimination federally or in South Dakota. The ACLU has advocated on behalf of LGBT people for over 70 years. Our mission is to foster a society in which LGBT people and people with HIV/AIDS enjoy the basic rights of equality, privacy and personal autonomy, and freedom of expression and association. Advancing LGBT rights brings us closer to the promise of full equality for all.
Religion & Belief
The Bill of Rights protects us from government interference with our religion, or from forcing any religious view upon us. The ACLU works to maintain this essential freedom by enforcing a separation of government and individual religious choice. We are dedicated to maintaining that separation to preserve religious freedom for all people.
Human Rights
The ACLU protects everyone's right to make informed decisions free from government interference about whether and when to become a parent. The ACLU of SD works with other groups in the state to safeguard reproductive rights for all women in South Dakota.
Women's Rights
Since 1972, the ACLU has been working to systematically end gender discrimination in the workplace and throughout all avenues of society. Women have made great strides in the fight for equality, but gender bias continues to create huge barriers in criminal justice reform for incarcerated women and in access to educational and work opportunities for many, especially poor women, women of color, and immigrant women. The ACLU continues to advocate for paycheck fairness and workplace protections for women across the country.
