Her work focuses on the ACLU of Georgia’s impact areas, including First Amendment Rights, Immigrants’ Rights, LGBTQ+ Rights, Privacy and Technology, Racial Justice, Voting Rights, and Women’s Rights and Reproductive Freedom.

Throughout her time with the ACLU, she has partnered with Communities in Schools Atlanta to present “Know Your Rights” seminars which inform students, parents, and teachers of their rights in schools. Aklima has also facilitated community training seminars, which equip future ACLU volunteers with the preliminary information required to advocate for their civil rights by becoming Legal Observers and Court Observers.
