Because I'll be damned if I let Martin Luther King Jr. get whitewashed this year.

While we are relieved our client was able to obtain an abortion, the Trump administration had no right to block her access to care for two weeks.

"At the very same time...America refused to give the Negro any land, thru an act of Congress, our gov't was giving away millions of acres of land in the West & Midwest, which meant that it was willing to undergird its white peasants from Europe w/ an economic floor."

Jailing crime victims?!? That's an insane abuse of a prosecutor's power, and we're suing. District attorneys have enormous power over who goes to jail, for how long, and who gets to go home. We're watching.

Earlier this week, we learned that yet another 17-year-old immigrant in government custody is being blocked by the Trump administration from obtaining an abortion. Now we're fighting for Jane Moe.

We've been fighting Arizona in court since 2012 over horrendous, unconstitutional medical care in its state prisons. We won't let up until the state stops its pattern of needless, extreme suffering and preventable death.

From 2012: Martin Luther King Jr.'s ‘crime’ was to challenge the laws enforcing segregation and preventing the right to vote, to protest the Vietnam war and to denounce policies that did not address widespread poverty in this country.

Congress may vote next week to expand government surveillance powers — it's critical that senators hear from us even over this holiday weekend. Tweet at your senators, especially if they're on this list of important votes, and tell them government spying needs to be reined in.

Today, the Florida House of Representatives voted to pass HB 9, a cruel anti-immigrant bill. We are not deterred. We remain dedicated to preventing this unconstitutional bill from becoming law and defending the civil rights and liberties of all Floridians.

The New Hampshire ACLU dragged federal immigration officers into state court to testify about how they colluded with state police to violate state law. It was pretty great.

Business owners, know your rights: ICE generally can’t enter non-public areas of your workplace without your consent, unless they have a warrant signed by a judge.
