Fix FOIA in Michigan

The water crisis in Flint, where government decisions left an entire city exposed to lead poisoning, has reminded us of the critical importance of open government. Tell Michigan legislators to amend the state Freedom of Information Act so that it no longer exempts the governor and legislature—because transparency and truth are the cornerstones of real democracy.

Michigan Is Not a Border Zone!

Under its "100-Mile Zone" policy, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol authorizes its agents to conduct warrantless vehicle stops anywhere in the state of Michigan, not just along the border. Further, CBP refuses to make public any information about the policy. Tell Congress that CBP must restricted to patrolling the border--not our entire state--and that the agency must be transparent and accountable. 

Hold Betsy DeVos Accountable

As a nominee for U.S. Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos should seek to demonstrate that she will work to protect and serve all of our students, regardless of religion, race, class, sexual orientation or gender identity. Demand that Congress give a comprehensive review of Betsy DeVos's record of championing causes that harm public schools and undermine the separation of church and state.

Demand Transparency from Trump

Donald J. Trump has not fully answered questions about his looming conflicts of interest. His ethical and financial conflicts threaten to undermine the public’s confidence in fair government – and even our national security.

The ACLU is demanding access to key documents concerning Trump’s conflicts of interest. The public has a right to know – and we need your help to make sure we get the full story.

Our Communities Are Not War Zones

Billions are being funneled into militarizing state and local police forces. Stop this siege on our communities of color.
