Anderson Curtis serves as interim senior field organizer and policy advocate for the American Civil Liberties Union of Connecticut (ACLU-CT). In his role, Anderson’s primary responsibilities include mobilizing ACLU-CT members, recruiting and developing campaign leaders who have been directly impacted by the criminal legal system and police violence, engaging Connecticut voters, and leading the ACLU-CT’s public education efforts. Anderson is a proud alumnus of Gateway Community College Drug and Alcohol Recovery Counselor (DARC). He completed the Community Leadership Program Cohort 24. Anderson’s passion for change is fueled by his lived experience of 20 years on the treadmill of moving in and out of the criminal legal system. After 14 years of seeking paths of healing and freedom, Anderson lives with hope and dignity, advocating for people to access employment and housing despite the barriers of discrimination and disparities.
