This event is a chance to learn how to join your local ACLU chapter and fight for issues that you care about. Santa Cruz County Chapter members work on many civil liberties issues including criminal justice reform, digital privacy, immigrants’ rights, racial justice, and economic justice. Chapters are the ACLU’s ambassadors in communities, and we work to keep lawmakers and other elected representatives on their toes by advocating for ACLU priorities and issues. During this event, we will hold our annual election of chapter board members.

Sign up now and help protect and expand civil rights in Santa Cruz!

This event is wheelchair accessible. Light refreshments will be provided.
