Week 5: ACLU

Hi there! Welcome back to another week of GIVE52.

I had another organization lined up for this week, but given recent events, I felt that it was more important to go in another direction. So, this week’s organization is the ACLU.


For almost 100 years, the ACLU has worked to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States. The ACLU is nonprofit and nonpartisan.

Currently they are:
    Protecting free speech and the right to protest
    Defending reproductive freedom
    Fighting anti-LGBT discrimination
    Advocating for expanded privacy protections

It is an honor to be in touch with each and every one of you.

I’ll leave you with this quote. It is one of my favorites, and feels especially relevant today.

When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”
— Fred Rogers

Here’s to the helpers.
(That’s you!)

Wishing you all the love and light my heavy heart can hold,
