The ACLU online team has put together an index to show how important the ACLU has been over its 90 years of defending the Constitution — and how many challenges we still have in front of us. This is our last installment:

Number of ACLU members at close of 1925: 2,250
Number of ACLU members at close of 2009: Approximately 500,000
Percent of our 2010 budget that the ACLU stands to lose as a result of losing our largest individual donor due to financial circumstances: 25
