LGBTQ+ Rights

For decades, the ACLU of New Mexico has been at the forefront of protecting the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBTQ+) people in our state.

Police Practices

Abuse by police continues to be a major civil rights problem in the U.S., particularly for the poor and for people of color. Everyone needs and deserves effective and humane law enforcement as a fundamental component of our human and civil rights.

Racial Justice

Although our nation's Declaration of Independence proclaims that "All [people] are created equal," for millions of Americans of color that promise remains unfulfilled.

Religious Refusals

With increasing frequency, we are seeing businesses and healthcare institutions claiming a right to discriminate — by refusing to provide health care and other services to women and LGBTQ people — based on religious objections.

Reproductive Freedom

Women have the right to make deeply private decisions about abortion and reproductive health without government interference. These decisions belong between a woman, her doctor, and her family - no one else.

Voter's Rights

Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy and the fundamental right upon which all our civil liberties rest. The ACLU of New Mexico works to protect and expand Americans' freedom to vote.
