The right to practice religion, or no religion at all, is among the most fundamental of the freedoms guaranteed by the Bill of Rights. The ACLU of Michigan Howard L. Simon Religious Liberty Project works to ensure that this essential freedom is protected.
The ACLU protects everyone's right to make informed decisions free from government interference about whether and when to become a parent. The ACLU works to protect reproductive rights across the country and to ensure that women and families have access to quality reproductive-health care.
The ACLU wholeheartedly believes that we can be safe and free.
The Fourth Amendment protects against unlawful searches and seizures. Despite this, countless citizens have been subjected to searches without suspicion. The ACLU of Michigan challenges such unlawful practices by law enforcement and in schools.
Constitutional violations are far too common in public schools across the country. Teachers and administrators have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for the students that is conducive to learning. They also have a responsibility to respect each student's individual rights.
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.
