With national women's rights organizations, the ACLU-CT filed a friend of the court brief siding with Noriana Radwan, a former UConn women's soccer player who was kicked off the team, lost her scholarship, and lost her ability to attend UConn because she raised her middle finger in celebration.
The ACLU of Connecticut's legal program handles cases that involve infringements upon constitutional rights and civil liberties. We represent individuals or classes of individuals whose cases will either serve to create new legal precedent or will result in general system-wide reform in favor of protecting and defending civil liberties. We file lawsuits, and we file amicus (friend-of-the-court) briefs addressing civil liberties issues in cases initiated by others. All of our legal work is on a pro bono basis; we never charge for our legal services. You can learn more about requesting legal assistance from the ACLU of Connecticut here.
