When the ACLU was founded in 1920, the guarantees provided by the Bill of Rights had little practical meaning for ordinary people. The advancement of civil liberties in the past 90 years represents one of the most significant developments in American history, and the ACLU has been integral to this process.
A new exhibit details the organization’s 90-year history of defending the rights enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, taking viewers through a tour of the ACLU’s historic victories and the ordinary individuals whose efforts to exercise their rights fueled the organization’s journey.
The exhibit will be touring throughout the country through the end of 2010 and into the new year. For more details about the ACLU's anniversary and the exhibit, please visit www.aclu90.org
