Criminal Law Reform

We are working to stop racially-biased policing and reform our criminal justice system so that law enforcement is accountable and transparent, fewer people are wrongfully arrested and incarcerated, and those who are incarcerated are treated with respect.

LGBTQIA+ Equality

No one should be discriminated against because of who they are or who they love. Since our founding, the ACLU of North Carolina has a long and proud history of fighting for equal rights for LGBTQ and gender nonconforming North Carolinians and their families.

Reproductive Justice

Through litigation, advocacy, and public education, we strive to ensure that every person has the opportunity to make a real decision about whether and when to have children and the ability to get the care they need.

Racial Justice

The ACLU of North Carolina aims to preserve and extend constitutionally guaranteed rights to people who have historically been denied their rights on the basis of race.

Voting Rights

Voting is the cornerstone of democracy. And yet, the right to vote is under constant threat.


Redistricting is the process used by governments to redraw political district boundaries. When politicians use redistricting to manipulate the outcome of elections, it undermines democracy and stifles the voice of voters. Voters should be picking their politicians, not the other way around.
