During a year of immense highs and lows, the ACLU of Louisiana fought tirelessly to protect the civil liberties and constitutional rights of every Louisianan. 

Together we worked to end mass incarceration and protect vulnerable people from COVID-19. We took part in the largest protest movement in American history and challenged racist policing across the state. And this fall, we voted like our rights depended on it, electing a progressive prosecutor in Orleans Parish and turning the page on one of the darkest chapters in American history. 

2020 was also a year of mourning, when many of us lost loved ones to a devastating pandemic that has disproportionately impacted Black and Brown communities. 

If there’s one thing 2020 has taught us, it’s that Louisianans are stronger and more resilient than we could have imagined. Moving forward, with your support, we’re more committed than ever to building a more just and equitable Louisiana for everyone.
