The ACLU of Connecticut is proud to announce David McGuire’s appointment as Legislative and Policy Director for the ACLU of Connecticut.
Stephen Glassman, Executive Director of the ACLU of Connecticut said, “David has done an exceptional job of developing our legislative and policy program during his eight year tenure at the ACLU of Connecticut. He commands wide-ranging respect from legislators on both sides of the aisle, agency officials in the executive branch, members of the media, and community groups throughout the state.”
This is the next step in ACLU of Connecticut’s integrated advocacy that employs focused public awareness campaigns, strategic partnerships, and coordinating our legal and lobbying efforts, to positively impact legislative outcomes in favor of civil liberties.
McGuire joined the ACLU of Connecticut in 2007 as staff attorney. In his time at ACLU he has advocated for legislation on digital privacy, free speech issues, criminal justice reform, police accountability and much more. He was instrumental in passing laws to reform police complaint procedures and a first-in-the-nation regulation on police use of Tasers.
McGuire received his B.A. in history from Purdue University in 2003 and graduated cum laude from Western New England College School of Law in 2006. After law school, he clerked for the judges of the Connecticut Superior Court.
