The Sarasota Chapter of the ACLU serves Sarasota, Manatee and DeSoto counties. With over 3,700 members, we are one of the largest, fastest-growing and most active ACLU chapters in all of Florida.
The ACLU is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization. We are not liberal, not conservative, not Republican, not Democrat, not right wing, not left wing — we welcome everyone to join us in our constant fight to protect everyone’s constitutional rights.
To get help from the ACLU, your personal or political beliefs do not matter — we have fought for the rights of people ranging from Rush Limbaugh to Michael Schiavo to elementary school parents in Miami (outraged that books were being arbitrarily banned from their children’s schools) to preachers who were being denied their right to preach on our public sidewalks.
Our only mission is to keep the promise of the Bill of Rights alive for every American.
If you live elsewhere in Florida and need to contact your local ACLU Chapter, or ACLU state headquarters, please go to our main website at www.aclufl.org.
