The U.S. Constitution's Bill of Rights protects us against suspicionless searches and seizures. It guarantees due process to individuals who are accused of crimes and humane treatment to those who are incarcerated. However, all too often the rights of those involved in the criminal justice system are compromised or ignored.

The ACLU of Minnesota works to reform the criminal justice system and make the promise of fair treatment a reality for all people. Through litigation and legislative efforts, we work to ensure that our criminal justice system upholds these constitutional protections.
