Racial Justice

Home/Racial Justice

ACLU-TN works to preserve and extend constitutionally-guaranteed civil liberties and civil rights to people who have historically been denied their rights on the basis of race and ethnicity.  From advancing voting rights and criminal justice reform to combatting racial profiling, selective enforcement of drug laws, and the school-to-prison pipeline, ACLU-TN fights to stop discrimination based on race and ethnicity and to ensure equal opportunities for communities of color.
