Your support helps the ACLU fight racial inequality and defend a broad range of civil liberties.
In our ever-more diverse nation, the ability to interact with and learn from people from different backgrounds is a critical component of every child's education. The Racial Justice Program aims to improve, equalize and integrate our nation's schools.
