The national American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is comprised of affiliates in each state. The ACLU of Northern California (ACLU-NC), based in San Francisco, is the affiliate that works to protect civil liberties in this region of the country. Founded in 1934, the ACLU-NC, is at the forefront of every civil liberties battle in the state — from the rights of immigrants and reproductive rights to abolition of the death penalty and the rights of lesbians and gay men. In addition to the direct litigation for which the ACLU-NC has been known over the past seven decades, we engage in public education, inform the media, educate and lobby legislators, organize grass-roots activists to enliven the public debate and disseminate information through our membership and volunteer chapters.
