The ACLU works toward a California that is free of discrimination based on gender and sexual orientation and that respects, values, and supports all Californians’ decisions about intimate relationships and reproduction.
What You Need to Know
We work to advance protections for pregnant and lactating Californians, and to ensure that people know their rights.
We fight for paid family leave and other workplace reforms that particularly support low-income people in being able to meaningfully care for family members without placing their livelihoods at risk.
We strive to expand women’s access to employment by breaking down barriers that have kept them out of male-dominated professions.
