ACLU-PA Our Work at the Capitol

The ACLU of Pennsylvania works year-round in Harrisburg to support legislation that expands or protects our civil liberties and fights against bills that infringe on our freedoms.

One of the few nonprofits with a full-time lobbyist, the ACLU of Pennsylvania works year-round to track legislative activity in the PA House and Senate, hold legislators accountable, and train ACLU-PA members and supporters to become constituent lobbyists—the most important voices for legislators to hear.
