The ACLU of Utah, chartered in 1958, is a non-partisan non-profit organization that operates through public education, legal advocacy, litigation, and lobbying at both the state and local levels to ensure the constitutional rights and freedoms of everyone living in or visiting Utah. Our work is based on those principles outlined in the Bill of Rights and our priorities include: Participatory Democracy; Racial Justice; Immigrants' Rights; Religious Liberty & Freedom of Belief; and Privacy & Technology. In addition, we continue our commitment to reform the Utah criminal justice system, protect the First Amendment, reproductive freedoms, and equality for all.
Because of limited resources and small staff, we often rely on dedicated volunteers and interns to assist us in fulfilling our important work. Our volunteers and interns provide an important service to our organization and we strive to make the experience beneficial for them as well. Our intern positions are unpaid, but we are willing to work with your school to help you obtain credit.
