Prisoners' Rights

The ACLU of Iowa is dedicated to ensuring that our state's prisons and jails comply with the Constitution, domestic law, and human rights principles.

The ACLU of Iowa is deeply concerned about intrusive government surveillance and tracking. We work in the courts and in the legislature to protect the privacy of all Iowans.

The ACLU of Iowa is working for an Iowa where all people, regardless of the color of their skin, are treated fairly and given equal opportunity in schools, the courts, by law enforcement, and in their communities.

Religious Freedom

The ACLU of Iowa supports the First Amendment right to freely exercise religious beliefs without government restraint and to make sure the government does not endorse any particular religion.

Reproductive Freedom

Through litigation, advocacy, and public education, the ACLU of Iowa strives to ensure that our government respects and supports reproductive rights for all.

Students have constitutional rights, too. The ACLU of Iowa defends young peoples' free speech and expression, religious freedom, reproductive freedom, privacy, freedom from unreasonable searches or seizures, and equal protection. It safeguards against bullying and other discriminatory treatment.
