Volunteer or Intern

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the ACLU of Pennsylvania.  

We have been overwhelmed by the offers of support and involvement, for which we are truly grateful. We are working to figure out the best way to use people’s skills and interests and direct them to meaningful volunteer activities. To sign up, please send us an email at volunteer@aclupa.org with your name, zip code and a telephone number. We will be in touch.

If you are a law student applying for an internship, please follow the instructions on this page.

If you believe your civil liberties have been violated and wish to file a complaint for review by our legal team, please click this link. Legal complaints filed via the volunteer sign up form will not be processed.

We also encourage you to join, donate, and to sign up for email action alerts. If you use Twitter or Facebook, like and follow both ACLU Nationwide and ACLU of Pennsylvania and share and retweet us.

Thank you again for your interest. We promise to be in touch. 


Because the ACLU of Pennsylvania is a nonprofit organization with limited resources, we rely on volunteers and interns to accomplish our work.

Most of our volunteer and internship opportunities are in one of our three offices  - Harrisburg, Pittsburgh, and Philadelphia. Some volunteers make a regular weekly commitment to volunteer; others help out on an as-needed basis.

If you'd like to volunteer locally and do not live near one of our offices, please visit our chapter page to find the chapter nearest you. Local chapters are made up of volunteers who help further the mission of the ACLU by alerting staff about civil liberties violations in their area, holding local events, and raising awareness in their communities about civil liberties and the ACLU-PA.
