Support the Next Generation Society Freedom Fund!

For more than 100 years the ACLU has stood strong against attacks on civil liberties and civil rights. Now, more than ever, it is critical to come together to fight for the freedoms endowed to us in the Constitution.

The Freedom Fund is a $1 million campaign over five years, launched by the Next Generation Society to support the work of the ACLU through 2022. The funds raised through this campaign will form the foundation for what the next generation of the ACLU will be able to do to protect everyone in our communities.

The Next Generation Society brings together emerging leaders, artists, and other supporters who are engaged in the key issues that will shape our nation’s future. The Society and its Members – alongside a community of partners, clients, volunteers, and supporters – make the ACLU’s work possible in Illinois and throughout the country. This includes efforts to end mass incarceration, reform the criminal justice system, legalize marijuana, defend reproductive freedom, promote LGBTQ rights, protect privacy in the digital age, and more.

Make a gift today to the Next Generation Society and help protect our democracy.
