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, challenge police practices, advocate for decarceation and an end to discrimination against people living with a criminal record, protect and expand LGBT rights, and prevent encroachment on the right to free speech.

In 2021, the Connecticut General Assembly's legislative session is virtual, making it more important than ever for people to take action with us online. Join one of our action teams to get involved. Sign up for our action alerts, to make sure you get emails around when it's time to act on important legislation. Use our lookup tool to find your legislators' social media handles to tell them to support civil rights and liberties legislation.
