ACLU Idaho Legislation

The ACLU of Idaho works with members of the state legislature, state agencies and commissions, and the Governor’s office and executive branch to advocate for legislation that will protect and strengthen our civil liberties. We lobby policymakers, analyze proposed bills, draft and present testimony, collaboratively strategize with coalition partners, and work to build grassroots community power for legislative reform.

Among many other civil liberty issues, our legislative work includes criminal justice reform, reproductive rights, LGBTQ equality, immigrant rights, disability rights, privacy, religious freedom, and free speech.
