American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania

The ACLU of Pennsylvania is a private, non-profit membership organization. Our mission is to preserve and protect the civil liberties and civil rights guaranteed by the US Constitution, especially the principles contained in the Bill of Rights, and the Pennsylvania Constitution. Among the issues we work on are freedom of speech, freedom of religion, government-sponsored religious activities, privacy, discrimination based on race, gender, sexual orientation or disability, police misconduct, censorship in schools or libraries, fairness in application of school discipline, workplace privacy, access to government documents, inhumane jail and prison conditions, and other issues of fair treatment by government. In general, we do not provide services while criminal charges are pending, but are happy to consult with criminal defense lawyers about civil liberties concerns. Also, we generally do not handle cases that involve such things as evictions, landlord-tenant disputes, general disputes between employees and employers (for example, disputes centering on wages and hours), divorce, child custody, or wills.
