We envision a Montana where everybody is treated with dignity and respect and has equal access to democracy, justice, equality, and liberty - no matter the political, social, or economic landscape. Our deepest challenges require long-term solutions that tackle injustice at the root. Beyond defensive battles, beyond election cycles, for all Montanans, for generations. Breaking cycles of poverty, incarceration, disenfranchisement, and racism will take more than crisis response— it will take a re-imagining of our systems.
True Montana Values Run Deep
Voting rights are under attack in this country as state legislatures nationwide pass voter suppression laws under the pretext of preventing voter fraud and safeguarding election integrity. Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy and the fundamental right upon which all our civil liberties rest.
Criminal Legal Reform
Over the last four decades, this country has relentlessly expanded the size of our criminal justice system, needlessly throwing away too many lives and wasting trillions of taxpayer dollars. Montana is no exception.
We seek to uplift Indigenous people, communities and tribes through community-directed and integrated legal and advocacy work. We aim to support tribal communities -- and follow their lead -- as they work to uphold their sovereignty, dignity, and autonomy.
We work to secure a world that respects everyone’s right to form intimate relationships and to decide whether and when to have children. Through litigation, advocacy, and public education, we strive to ensure that our government respects and supports reproductive freedom for all.
The ACLU of Montana is a movement of people fighting together for liberty, justice, democracy, and equality, and our activists help turn our fundamental values into reality.
We couldn't accomplish nearly as much as we do without our members, donors, and volunteers. Civil liberties are about people, and that's where real change begins. With your help, we at the ACLU of Montana can make a difference, and help turn America's most cherished principles into reality.
