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.

S.B. 992, An Act Concerning the TRUST Act

The pain and fear that the federal government’s deportation agenda is wreaking on immigrant communities is undeniable, and Connecticut should take every step to ensure that local and state law enforcement are not parties to this harmful machine. We support this bill to strengthen the TRUST Act.
