Federal class action lawsuit filed against cash bail
Together with the ACLU and Covington & Burling LLP, we filed a class action lawsuit for violating the constitutional rights of people who are presumed innocent, but confined to jail because they can't afford bail.
The ACLU has advocated on behalf of Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender people for more than 70 years and, in 1986, founded the LGBT & AIDS Project. The LGBT Project fights discrimination and moves public opinion on LGBT rights through the courts, legislatures and public education. The mission of the Project is to foster a society in which LGBT people and people with HIV/AIDS enjoy the basic rights of equality, privacy and personal autonomy, and freedom of expression and association.
