January 20, Friday IT’S TIME TO FIGHT (ACLU ACTION)
7:00 AM at

All eyes are on America. Donald Trump just won the presidency. And the ACLU will stay vigilant – every single day Trump is in office.

If President-elect Trump tries to turn his unlawful and unconstitutional campaign promises into policy, we’ll see him in court. He’ll have to face the full force of the ACLU – all of our lawyers and advocates in every state – and he’ll have to answer to you.

Get ready to fight with us. Add your name to stand with the ACLU – to take action, to protect all of our rights, and to win battles in the weeks ahead.
