During this turbulent time, it is important that individuals and groups receive accurate, impartial information about how to protect their civil rights and liberties, according to the ACLU of Virginia.
The ACLU-VA is available to offer informational sessions, group trainings and expert sources for media interviews on the following subjects:

  • Criminal justice and its reform;
  • Due process;
  • First Amendment rights, including the right to protest and religious liberty;
  • How to interact with police;
  • Open government;
  • Police practices, including use of force and body-worn cameras;
  • Privacy, technology, and mass surveillance by the government; and
  • Voting rights.
“We want the public to make good decisions, and critical to that is having balanced information on these issues, including counter-perspectives to law enforcement and the government in general,” said Bill Farrar, director of public policy and communications. “We will strive to offer helpful, relevant, legal-based, principled guidance on individual rights.”
