Mission Statement

The Maryland ACLU works to ensure that all people in the state of Maryland are free to think and speak as they choose and can lead their lives free from discrimination and unwarranted government intrusion. We are guided in our work by the United States Bill of Rights and the Maryland Declaration of Rights. The Maryland ACLU acts without partisanship to achieve these goals.

The Chapter focuses on educating law students and the law school community about civil liberties issues. We host 3-4 events per year, including at least one large, multi-organization panel of professionals. This past year, the Chapter hosted a panel on the USA PATRIOT Act which included several well respected experts.
