We are the San Francisco mid-peninsula chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union. We provide local support for the cities from Mountain View to Redwood City. Currently, there are about 3500 dues-paying members in this region.
We are an all-volunteer group. Your dues and donations go to pay
salaries and expenses at the national headquarters in Washington and
at the regional headquarters in San Francisco. You can use
these links to go to their web sites:

ACLU for Northern California
Our mission is to supplement the activities of the regional and national headquarters by providing local presence in our cities.
We have a volunteer board-of-directors that arranges local events and provides a hotline for civil rights violations in our district.
