Legislative Advocacy

The ACLU’s legislative work at the state and federal level protects and advances civil liberties. Our team of legislative advocates fight for your rights in Sacramento and Washington DC. In Sacramento, our legislative advocates and staff at the ACLU of California Center for Advocacy & Policy collaborate with other organizations and lawmakers to draft bills, coordinate with ACLU supporters, impacted communities, and coalition partners to lobby legislators, testify in support of bills, seek support from other groups, draft fact sheets and sample support letters, and provide communications and media support.
