A note on volunteering:

So many of you have reached out to get involved since the election of President Trump. We are inspired and humbled by the outpouring of support. We are working to find new and meaningful ways to harness all this people power! If you have a suggestion, please feel free to reach out to us at info@aclu-or.org.

two volunteers at the ACLU of Oregon's booth at Portland PrideVolunteers are the backbone of the ACLU. From volunteer attorneys and speakers, to people who help around the office or table at community events, volunteers make the ACLU’s work to protect and extend civil liberties and civil rights possible.
