The ACLU of Ohio's Speakers Bureau provides speakers to over one hundred community groups, schools, and professional organizations across the state each year. Our speakers consist of (former and current) members of the ACLU staff, board of directors, and Action Teams; faculty at law schools and universities; and other civil liberties experts and activists.

We can present on the following topics:

Please note: Due to increased demand, we require three weeks' notice and an audience of at least 25 participants to schedule a speaker. For smaller events and house parties, we can send ACLU handouts and materials for you to share. Other events may be considered on a case-by-case basis.

To request a speaker, please fill out our web form below.

ACLU Speakers are available to your group at no charge. If your budget includes an honorarium, we would gladly accept that to offset the costs of our Speakers Bureau.
