From Amarillo to Brownsville and Beaumont to El Paso, we believe in a Texas that works for all of us — a Texas where each person has an equal say in the decisions that shape our future and everyone can build a good life.

Border and Immigrants’ Rights

The fight for border and immigrants’ rights is especially important in the Lone Star State. Seventeen percent of our state’s residents are foreign-born, and we share a 1,254-mile border with Mexico.

Free Speech

Protecting free speech means protecting a free press, the democratic process, diversity of thought, and so much more. The ACLU has worked since 1920 to ensure that freedom of speech is protected for everyone.

LGBTQIA+ Equality

The ACLU of Texas works to protect, defend, and expand the constitutional and civil rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA+) Texans. 

Reproductive Freedom

The ACLU of Texas works to ensure that everyone in Texas can decide if, when, and with whom they have children. 

Smart Justice

The ACLU of Texas works in partnership with communities to fight racism in the criminal legal system and to reduce the number of people in prisons and jails. We work in the courts and advocate for change in local and state government.

Voting Rights

Voting and the right to vote are a bedrock of democracy. No rightful voter should be denied the opportunity to make their voice heard. And no voter should be afraid to vote because of intimidating poll watchers or the threat of going to jail for making an honest mistake.
