The Harrisburg Chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is a local
component of the state ACLU chapter. As a national organization, the American
Civil Liberties Union champions the rights set forth in the Bill of Rights of
the United States Constitution, including freedom of speech, press, assembly,
and religion. The ACLU is a strong proponent of due process of law and fair trial
and equality before the law regardless of race, color, sexual orientation, national
origin, political opinion, or religious belief. ACLU activities include litigation,
advocacy, and public education.
The records remain unprocessed, but include correspondence, business records,
minutes of meetings, membership data, copies of papers filed with the court, and
materials pertaining to various issues of interest to the Harrisburg Chapter of
the American Civil Liberties Union.
