The ACLU of Illinois has been the principal protector of constitutional rights in the state since its founding in 1926. It is comprised of two organizations: the American Civil Liberties Union and the ACLU Foundation. The ACLU of Illinois (ACLU), and its affiliated Roger Baldwin Foundation (RBF), are non-partisan, non-profit organizations dedicated to protecting the liberties guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, the state Constitution, and state/federal human rights laws. The ACLU accomplishes its goals through litigating, lobbying and educating the public on a broad array of civil liberties issues.
