Our goal is to ensure that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender South Dakotans can live openly without discrimination and enjoy equal rights, personal autonomy, and freedom of expression and association. The ACLU has a long history of defending the LGBTQIA+ community, with historic wins around marriage rights at the U.S. Supreme Court and in states around the country.
 
The ACLU brings more LGBTQIA+ cases and advocacy initiatives than any other national organization. There is no other organization that can match our record of making progress both in the courts of law and in the court of public opinion. LGBT people are not legally protected from discrimination federally or in South Dakota. Through litigation, lobbying, public education, and organizing, we work to advance LGBT rights, bringing us closer to the promise of full equality for all.
 
 
The ACLU Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Project seeks to create a just society for all LGBT people regardless of race or income. Through litigation, lobbying, public education, and organizing, we work to build a country where our communities can live openly without discrimination and enjoy equal rights, personal autonomy, and freedom of expression and association.
