In 1966, a group of civil libertarians, attorneys, and academics founded the ACLU of Nevada. Since that time, we have stood strong in our commitment to advancingand protecting the civil rights and liberties of all Nevadans. We are excited to continue to support the community with a renewed vision for the coming years. Over the past year, the ACLU of Nevada has developed an inclusive framework toguide our work over the next three years. This plan focuses on our strategic priorities for 2022 - 2024.

According to the 2020 Census, Nevada continues to be one of the fastest growing states in the country. Our diversity index is now the third highest in the country, our urban population centers in Northern and Southern Nevada continue to attract people of all ages and backgrounds from across the United States and the world, and our rural communities continue to evolve and diversify. This means that in addition to our strategic priorities, we must remain committed to being responsive to changing community needs. Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging permeate all aspects of our work.

We know, however, that progress is not possible without reconciling with our past. We acknowledge that our work must be grounded in equity and social justice, withan emphasis on dismantling the systemic inequality that permeates the structures within which we operate. We understand that the work of social justice is transformative - not transactional - and we will actively engage in efforts to uplift, involve, and support the community around us.

Through this aspirational plan and with your support, we will achieve our mission to defend and advance the civil liberties and civil rights of all Nevadans, while pursuing our vision of a just and fair society in which all can participate, prosper, and reach their full potential.
