Legal Work

RI American Civil Liberties Union

For almost sixty years, the ACLU of Rhode Island has been fighting in the courts, the legislature and public forums to promote the protection of basic civil rights and civil liberties for all Rhode Islanders. We will continue to be available to challenge violations of basic constitutional and civil rights as they arise, and encourage people who believe their rights have been violated to contact us. Information on how to file complaints can be found on our website,, but people can also call us at 401 831-7171 or email us at We further encourage people concerned about what the coming years will bring to become “card carrying members” of the ACLU, which can also be done on our website.
