Thank you for your interest in advancing and defending civil liberties and civil rights in Tennessee.

ACLU-TN is a constant presence at the state capitol during the Tennessee General Assembly session, working to advance legislation that expands or protects our civil liberties and fighting against bills that infringe on our freedoms. But your voice is essential. You can check out highlights of our work at Legislative Watch List and take action on a range of issues below.

This year we are pursuing proactive initiatives to eliminate juvenile fines and fees, end bail garnishment, stop expulsions of students in grades pre-K – 2, and ensure police officers are not rehired despite disciplinary infractions. Just as we have always done, ACLU-TN is prepared to ensure that our representatives uphold Tennessee’s values of justice and equality. We will also plan to fight back against any attempts to undermine reproductive justice, harm immigrants and refugees, enable racial injustice, and discriminate against LGBTQ individuals and religious minorities.
