We are the chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union serving the middle region of the San Francisco peninsula. We provide support for the cities from Mountain View to Redwood City.
We are an all-volunteer group. Your ACLU dues and donations
support the salaries and expenses at the regional and national offices. You can use
these links to go to their web sites:
ACLU National Organization
ACLU of Northern California
Our mission is to supplement the activities of the regional offices by providing a local presence in the mid-peninsula cities.
The ACLU of Northern California staffs a telephone line to handle civil rights violations. For information on what types of cases the ACLU handles and the telephone number, you can click here:
Our board usually meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7:00pm. You are welcome to come, even if you aren't currently an ACLU member. Our usual meeting place is the Friends Meeting House on Colorado Ave in Palo Alto. See the EVENTS page for directions. Check our Calendar for information about specific dates.
