About Us

The American Civil Liberties Union is the oldest civil rights organization fighting for fairness and equality for gay people. It has challenged baseless raids of meetings of gay organizations, the hurtful presence of laws preventing gay people from marrying, laws restricting gay people from having custody of their children, discrimination and bullying in schools, and much more.
