The coronavirus pandemic has upended daily life and imperiled the health and financial security of thousands of Kentuckians. We've been working harder than ever to continue defending the civil rights and liberties of everyone in our commonwealth. See what actions we've taken and get involved.

Immigrants' Rights

The fundamental constitutional protections of due process and equal protection embodied in our Constitution and Bill of Rights apply to every “person” and are not limited to citizens.

Justice Reform

The Commonwealth of Kentucky incarcerates too many people for too long and for the wrong reasons.

LGBT Rights

The ACLU of Kentucky has been an ally from the very beginning of the LGBT rights movement in KY, working towards a society in which all individuals enjoy the basic rights of equality, privacy and personal autonomy, and freedom of expression and association.
