WASHINGTON – The American Civil Liberties Union mourns the passing of Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) and sends its condolences to his family, friends, staff and the people of New Jersey.
“Our country lost a true civil liberties titan today,” said Laura W. Murphy, director of the ACLU Washington Legislative Office. “From his service during World War II to his final months in the Senate, Sen. Lautenberg understood the importance of fighting for the rights of every American. He was a champion for religious liberty and leaves behind a legacy of fighting for women’s rights and reproductive freedom. We will sorely miss his voice and passion.”
Every month, you'll receive regular roundups of the most important civil rights and civil liberties developments. Remember: a well-informed citizenry is the best defense against tyranny.
The American Civil Liberties Union is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to every person in this country by the Constitution and laws of the United States of America.
