The Ron DeHarpporte Changemaker Award, which honors an individual or organization who has worked closely with the ACLU-MN to protect civil liberties in Minnesota, will be awarded to the Nobles County Public Defenders. The NCPD office has assisted us in lawsuits against the Nobles County Sheriff and the Worthington Police Department. They have protected immigrant rights in Nobles County by keeping us aware of detention violations and alerting us to cases across southern Minnesota, despite facing significant blowback from their work.
VICTORY! ACLU-MN Wins Federal Appeal
