Virginia is on the verge of legalizing marijuana. It’s important that lawmakers center racial justice and social equity as they debate the ins and outs of legislation to legalize marijuana in Virginia.
Join us next Saturday, December 12, for the annual ACLU-VA Northern Virginia Chapter Legislative Forum.
The Virginia Right to Vote Coalition and the Richmond Public Library are hosting a free screening/panel discussion at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct.
Join the ACLU of Virginia as they review the changes to Virginia’s new voting laws. Virginians have more options and fewer restrictions on voting because of new laws that went into effect earlier this year.
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed every aspect of life and highlighted the systemic racist issues in our everyday life, from the criminal legal system to voting.
No one is equal until we are all equal, and we are committed to ensuring no Virginian is discriminated against in the workplace, when seeking housing, or in public accommodations.
Black and brown communities have been most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic at all levels, including for those behind bars, which has not received much attention.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Northern Virginia Crabfest & Annual Meeting has been cancelled. If you miss us, we hope you'll join us in Arlington on Sept. 12 for the ACLU-VA Annual Meeting.
