Leaders of ACLU of Oregon
The ACLU of Oregon has eight paid staff members who rely on the support of volunteers to protect our constitutional rights. Volunteers include more than 20 board members who represent our state-wide membership. Chapter board members, grassroots activists, attorneys, request counselors, public speakers, events, technical and staff assistants contribute countless volunteer hours toward ensuring our government protects us all.

Membership dues and donations to the ACLU of Oregon provide the economic basis needed to work on a variety of constitutional issues through our litigation, legislation and education programs.
