American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)

Definition - What does American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) mean?

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is a nonprofit organization that acts to guarantee the rights of all citizens of the U.S. that are covered by the Constitution. The group works through mainly lobbying, but also represents persons in lawsuits that would be precedent-setting.

Justipedia explains American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)

The ACLU does not take on every case that is brought to it, nor will it offer advice. The organization is limited in what it is willing or able to do, but acts to make major changes where possible, such as through getting notice or attention for its chosen subjects.
