Freedom

Because we live in a free society, we must provide equal protection for everyone's freedoms, especially those in the minority — be it racial, religious, sexual preference, gender, age or other definition. When freedoms as outlined in the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights are in jeopardy, the ACLU of Indiana is there to defend them.
