If you’re like most civil rights advocates in Virginia, this year’s legislative session probably left you feeling accomplished, encouraged, and maybe even comforted. We legalized marijuana, ended the death penalty, expanded protections for the LGBTQ+ community, and so much more.
The ACLU of Virginia is the leading champion of civil liberties in the Commonwealth. We want to keep you informed about the work we do in the legislature, in the courts, and in the community. We'll also give you our take on issues affecting people in neighborhoods throughout the state.
