The ACLU of North Carolina works in the North Carolina General Assembly and local communities to defend and advance the civil rights and civil liberties of all North Carolinians. When the state legislature is in session, we review every bill for its potential impact on civil liberties and often conduct advocacy on dozens of pieces of legislation at any given time. The long session resumed on January 30, 2019 and is currently ongoing. 

Make sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to get faster updates on any legislation we are monitoring during this long session!
