The ACLU’s principles are those of the Bill of Rights. The ACLU of Alabama continues the ACLU’s tradition of defending the rights of even the least popular members of society, for when those rights are lost for one, they are lost for all.
The ACLU of Alabama is an affiliate of the American Civil Liberties Union and is a non-profit, private organization. It receives no state or federal government funding. It is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. The ACLU of Alabama Foundation is funded through donations from people in Alabama interested in furthering the work of the organization. Donations to the ACLU of Alabama’s Foundation are tax deductible and shared with the national ACLU.
