The ACLU is our nation’s guardian of liberty, working daily in courts, legislatures and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties that the Constitution and laws of the United States guarantee everyone in this country.

These rights include:

  • Your First Amendment rights – freedom of speech, association and assembly; freedom of the press and freedom of religion.
  • Your right to equal protection under the law - protection against unlawful discrimination.
  • Your right to due process – fair treatment by the government whenever the loss of your liberty or property is at stake.
  • Your right to privacy – freedom from unwarranted government intrusion into your person and private affairs.

The ACLU of Mississippi is dedicated to promoting, defending and extending civil liberties to all Mississippians with emphasis on issues related to criminal justice reform, youth justice, equality and freedom of speech and expression.

If the rights of society’s most vulnerable members are denied, everybody’s rights are imperiled.
