Be The Change: Take Action in 2023

Change happens because of people like you. Join our people-powered movement for justice, equity and freedom!

No matter your level of experience, there is an opportunity for everyone to get involved: 

  • The in-office volunteer program is starting up again and we'd love to have you onboard. This opportunity is for folks who can make a biweekly commitment to help our team fulfill projects like data entry, event preparation, and materials requests from our San Francisco, Sacramento, or Fresno office. Click here to sign up and join us in-office. 

  • Sign up for our general volunteer e-mail list to receive information about upcoming trainings, virtual events, and opportunities to take action. 

  • Join us for a text or phone bank. Our Outreach Team helps us mobilize voters to contact their lawmakers, turn people out for online events, and connect people to ACLU resources. 

  • Chapters are the grassroots team of the ACLU, organizing locally across Northern California. They host events to build community and educate the public, cultivate partnerships with local organizations and leaders, and work with staff to move forward ACLU campaign goals and civil liberties priorities.

Join us for the conference in downtown Sacramento that will span two days of workshops, keynote speakers, and community-building and networking events. Travel grants are available to support with the cost of transportation and hotels. 

Nearly four years have passed since we’ve been able to gather together in person. The past four years have brought both victories and losses, joys and sorrows, and new insights into how we can advance civil liberties and healthy communities here in California and beyond.
