  • Who We Are
    • The ACLU of Hawai‘i is an affiliate office of the American Civil Liberties Union, a national nonprofit,  nonpartisan public interest organization devoted to the protection of civil liberties and civil rights through litigation, legislative advocacy, organizing, and community education. The ACLU of Hawaiʻi works primarily on issues that directly impact people who live in Hawaiʻi.
    • We take pride in our reputation of over 50 years fighting for people whose civil rights and liberties are challenged. And now—with never-before-imagined threats to civil liberties nationally, the increased need to be a check on government locally, and the 400-years overdue increased awareness of the impacts of systemic racism on every element of our society—it is the ideal time to join us and make a meaningful impact on the future of Hawai‘i and the United States!
    • We are currently pursuing specific integrated advocacy campaigns (Decriminalizing Poverty, Reimagining Policing and Smart Justice) to achieve measurable goals that will expand civil liberties and civil rights while building the long-term power of the ACLU and the civil liberties movement.
