If you feel that your rights are being threatened — and even violated — more and more, you're not alone. 2020 is a landmark year in our mission to protect and promote civil liberties in Minnesota, and we're counting on you to create change by sharing your concerns, your stories and your hopes with your representatives.
Join other ACLU of Minnesota supporters on March 10, 2020, as we take our fight for civil liberties to the state Capitol.
ACLU-MN Lobby Day will open with a rally in the state Capitol Rotunda at 1:30 p.m. Afterwards we'll break up into small groups, each guided by a Lead Volunteer, and we will talk to our individual legislators about key civil rights legislation up for a possible vote this year.
We will push legislators to:
- Protect email privacy.
- Require warrants for drone surveillance by police.
- Fix a broken forfeiture system that encourages law enforcement to "police for profit."
- Stop the wealth-based suspension of driver's licenses for traffic tickets and fees, and require courts to consider someone's ability to pay before assessing excessive fines and fees.
All Lobby Day participants get a free ACLU-MN T-shirt!
If you live in Southern Minnesota, we have FREE bus service that will bring you to the Capitol for Lobby Day. The bus will stop in Worthington, St. James, Mankato and St. Peter. Breakfast and box lunches will be provided to all bus passengers.
