Home/Youth and Students' Rights

The Constitution doesn’t place age requirements on our freedoms. ACLU-TN works to ensure that every student has the equal opportunity to attend nurturing and safe schools that provide high quality education free from discrimination. Highlights of our youth rights work include defending students’ free speech and privacy rights, preserving students’ religious freedom, protecting LGBT youth from harassment and bullying, and working to dismantle the school-to-prison pipeline.

We also offer a robust youth engagement program, including internships, students’ rights conferences and more.
