From your local school board all the way to the White House, it’s important today’s decision-makers hear from you. The ACLU of Texas works in the courts, in the legislature and in the court of public opinion to help preserve basic liberties for all in our state and in the country. But none of this work is possible without your help. Please take a moment to let your voice be heard.
