The ACLU of Connecticut takes an active role in every session of the state legislature to support bills that advance civil liberties and oppose those that do not. We have testified before the legislature hundreds of times and have taken leading roles in the struggles to repeal the death penalty, fight racial profiling, reform police practices, decriminalize marijuana, protect LGBT rights, and prevent encroachment on the right to free speech.
