The Springfield Chapter of the ACLU works in our state's capitol to help support the ACLU of Illinois' state initiatives. We encourage support of legislation supported by the ACLU of Illinois, as well as monitor local ACLU issues like law enforcement practices, access to full range of women's health care, immigration concerns, etc.
