ACLU Supporter –
Last year, with your advocacy and engagement, we advanced ambitious reforms that will make positive change for all Californians.
These include landmark legislation to reduce police shootings and increase accountability for police officers; expand abortion access on public university campuses; make it easier for people to vote on election day; ensure that people in jail can access needed healthcare; and make the jury selection system more fair.
These victories required leaders in the state legislature who partnered with the ACLU in California and defied pressure by special interest groups to protect and advance our civil liberties.
We evaluated all state assembly members and senators on nearly 200 bills that the ACLU in California sponsored, supported, or opposed in 2019. Nine legislators stood out with perfect scores on civil liberties issues. These are your Civil Liberties Champions:
These legislators distinguished themselves as champions by authoring or co-authoring our sponsored bills in 2019 and by voting with us on all of our sponsored and supported bills. They also stood with us on the most controversial bills and the bills we opposed.
As we begin another round of legislative battles this year, this scorecard reminds us that there are wide differences among our legislators. It recognizes those who have demonstrated the courage of their convictions by fighting for your rights and the rights of all Californians.
Together, we will continue to fight until everyone is able to live with equal dignity and respect.
