COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the ACLU of Virginia will prioritize action alerts directly related to violations of people's civil rights and civil liberties during the outbreak. If you're aware of any abuses in Virginia prisons, jails and detention centers, please report back to us at our hotline

Local activists can help turn our fundamental values into reality in Virginia. Real change starts with you - and every one of us can help make a difference. Here are the ways you can take action NOW.

You can also help defend and promote civil liberties by signing up to receive action alerts that will go to your email!

Personal communications with elected officials can have a significant impact on their actions.  Learn about how to contact your legislators.
