The ACLU of Nevada works to protect the rights and liberties of all Nevadans through lobbying on legislation and regulations, litigating, and educating the public.
The ACLU of Nevada monitors and testifies at meetings of all levels of government, from school boards and city councils to the Nevada Legislature. We support bills and regulations that expand the idea of individual liberties and civil rights and oppose bills and regulations that limit liberty or violate the U.S. or Nevada Constitutions. The ACLU of Nevada is strictly non-partisan and our lobbying work is supported by our 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization.
The ACLU of Nevada works to educate Nevadans about their civil liberties and civil rights. We hold public education events and publish Know Your Rights materials and reports on civil liberties issues that are available through our website or one of our offices.
The ACLU of Nevada's legal department focuses on establishing case law and policy precedents that protect or expand civil rights. We use litigation as a last resort. We prefer to talk things out or negotiate whenever possible to correct civil rights violations.
