For the past 50 years, the ACLU of Arkansas has worked tirelessly for a more just, free, and equal America. We’ve stood up to oppose abortion bans and protect the rights of students, journalists, and people with disabilities. We fought back against unconstitutional police practices and shut down debtors’ prisons. We’ve safeguarded the freedom of speech and battled to protect the right to vote. And we’ve fought arm-in-arm to protect religious liberty, combat systemic racism, and defend immigrant communities.
This document highlights some of our key achievements over the past 50 years. It’s more than a resume or trip down memory lane. It’s evidence of why we continue to fight each and every day for the protections we hold dear, and a reminder to keep marching forward toward a future of true fairness and equality.
