Guardians of Liberty

Guardians of Liberty members make modest monthly donations to provide the ACLU with consistent support that allows us to defend freedom at every turn.

Reliable, consistent monthly support allows us to take on new projects, with the knowledge that we will have the funding to see them through, and also allows us to respond to urgent needs whenever our rights are threatened.

As a Guardian of Liberty, your monthly contributions will be put to immediate use, making sure that no challenge to any of our rights goes unanswered. An automatic monthly pledge — made in small, affordable installments — is one of the most efficient ways that you can support the ACLU. That means more of your donation will go directly toward critically important work.
