Legislative advocacy is as easy as B-I-N-G-O – at least it is when you’re playing the ACLU of South Dakota’s SDLeg bingo game.
Decisions made during the annual sessions of the South Dakota Legislature have a deep and lasting impact on our state’s people and communities. As new laws are created and others repealed or written, it’s important to ensure that these changes preserve and strengthen our constitutional rights.
The ACLU of South Dakota monitors a wide range of issues at the legislature. Our education, organizing and lobbying efforts are aimed at informing both lawmakers and the public about the civil rights and civil liberties implications of the bills proposed by our elected officials.
But we can’t do it alone. There are countless ways to create positive change during the South Dakota legislative session, like contacting your elected officials and attending legislative coffees.
To make it a little more fun, the ACLU of South Dakota wants to play SDLeg Bingo. The SDLeg Bingo card is comprised of 24 things anyone can do during the South Dakota legislative session.
Want to play? Download your bingo card at www.aclusd.org/bingo. When you have a bingo, snap a picture and post it on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and tag the ACLU of South Dakota. The ACLU of South Dakota will select winners and award some prizes every month.
About the ACLU of South Dakota
The American Civil Liberties Union of South Dakota is a non-partisan organization dedicated to the preservation and enhancement of civil liberties and civil rights. The ACLU believes freedoms of press, speech, assembly, and religion, and the rights to due process, equal protection, and privacy are fundamental to a free people. In addition, the ACLU seeks to advance constitutional protections for groups traditionally denied their rights, including people of color, women, and the LGBT communities. The ACLU of South Dakota carries out its work through selective litigation, lobbying at the state and local level, and through public education and awareness of what the Bill of Rights means for people of South Dakota.
