LGBTQ Rights

Womens' Rights

Women have made great strides in the fight for equality, but gender bias continues to create huge barriers for many, especially poor women, women of color, and immigrant women.

Capital Punishment

Criminal Justice

The Criminal Law Reform Project seeks an end to excessively harsh crime policies that result in mass incarceration and stand in the way of a just and equal society.

Disabilities

The ACLU strives for an America free of discrimination against people with disabilities, where people with disabilities are valued, integrated members of society who have full access to education, homes, health care, jobs, and families.

Equal Rights

The ACLU works for the equal rights of all people as guaranteed by the U.S. and Arkansas Constitutions. Equal Rights applies to many issues, including some not easily categorized otherwise.
