Over the years, the ACLU has partnered with many members of the entertainment industry on film screenings, panel discussions, documentary films, delegations, and awareness campaigns. The ACLU Ambassador Project is an exciting next step in the ACLU's longtime collaboration with the entertainment community, in an effort to use celebrity for the greater good.
The ACLU Ambassador Project ties influential creative artists in film, television, music and comedy with public education and advocacy for key ACLU issues. Each Ambassador works with ACLU national staff members on specific civil liberties issues, which include: voting rights, LGBT and AIDS, marriage for same-sex couples, privacy and security, abortion/reproductive rights, overincarceration, racial justice, and veterans.
Ambassadors work with the ACLU in various ways. Whether they use their social media accounts to spread our messaging, participate in breaking news teleconferences or legislative hearings or meet with members of Congress, their involvement in furthering the work of the ACLU is invaluable.
