horwitz4Members of The ACLU Next Generation Society bring an infusion of energy to the organization, different professional and social networks, and most importantly, their passion for protecting civil liberties for the coming generations.

Members make a minimum annual commitment of $125, which helps fund our cutting edge work to end mass incarceration, legalize marijuana, defend reproductive freedom, protect privacy in the digital age, and more.

Our Next Generation members demonstrate their commitment to the enduring values embodied in the Constitution and civil rights laws through their support of The Roger Baldwin Foundation of the ACLU, the fundraising arm of the ACLU of Illinois.
