Privacy, Surveillance and Technology

As technology advances, we need to make sure that protections for privacy and free speech aren’t left behind. ACLU-TN works to expand the right to privacy, increase individuals’ control over their personal information, and ensure that civil liberties are enhanced by technological innovation.

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. ACLU-TN fights to stop discrimination and to ensure equal opportunities for communities of color.

Religious Freedom

ACLU-TN defends the right of all Americans to freely practice their religion and express their faith, or to choose not to practice a religion. We oppose government endorsement of one religion over another, and we support individuals’ right to worship without government interference or influence.

Reproductive Justice

ACLU-TN works to ensure that every person can make the best decisions for themselves and their family about whether and when to have a child without undue political interference.

Voting Rights

Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy.  ACLU-TN works to ensure that all eligible voters have an opportunity to cast a ballot that will be counted; to make voting as easy and accessible as possible; and to make sure that all votes are counted equally.
