Notre Dame American Civil Liberties Union
The Notre Dame American Civil Liberties Union (ND ACLU) is the student chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). Since its founding in 1920, the ACLU, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, has been the guardian of the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States through direct advocacy efforts in the nation's courts, legislatures, and communities. The ND ACLU seeks to further the civil libertarian efforts of the ACLU through advocacy, dialogue, and education, staying ever respectful of the religious nature of the University of Notre Dame. For more information, contact our President, Rory Patrick McManama.
