Our Work

Each year, ACLU of Massachusetts lawyers provide representation in approximately 70 cases in the courts. In addition, we lobby for and against hundreds of bills filed in the state legislature that would have either a positive or negative impact of civil liberties in the Commonwealth. Our public education and organizing work mobilizes activists and students to fight for the rights and protections that are the hallmarks of our constitutional system.
