From fighting for legislation to combat racial profiling, to litigating cases to challenge discriminatory laws, the ACLU of Connecticut stands for the equal treatment of all people. Though generations of activism have led to important gains realizing our country's foundational promise of equality for all people, Connecticut is not immune to the systemic racial injustice from which our country has yet to break free. From our criminal justice system, which disproportionately imprisons people of color and criminalizes poverty, to the stark racial disparities in who police stop, search, and tase, the dream of full equality remains an elusive one.
