The ACLU of Georgia finds that these issues present the main challenges to the civil and individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the United States Constitution. We accumulated these issues through our extensive work defending and preserving those rights and liberties on three main fronts: in the courts, legislatures and communities.

And on all three fronts, the ACLU of Georgia continues advancing the cause of civil liberties and is monitoring each issue. Due to limited resources and personnel, the ACLU of Georgia cannot litigate every issue presented or pursue every complaint with potential merit. Nonetheless, we stay dedicated to protecting our community and their constitutional rights and liberties.

Racial Justice

"Our Atlanta city fathers and mothers dismantled the old Jim Crow. We can, and we must unravel all of the manifestations of the New Jim Crow."

Women's Rights

Throughout the ACLU’s history, great strides have been made to protect women’s rights, including women’s suffrage, education, women entering the workforce, and most recently, the Me Too Movement.

Disability Rights

Striving for an America free of discrimination against people with disabilities, where they are valued, integrated members of society with full access to education, homes, health care, jobs, voting, and beyond.
