ACLU makes sure that constitutional rights — to free speech, to privacy, to due process — don’t just exist on paper, but also in practice. The ACLU is the first line of defense against threats to civil liberties and it works to ensure these freedoms are guaranteed to every person in this country. Its work is guided by the principles of freedom, equality, and justice enumerated in the Constitution. However, it knows that because of historic and systemic racism and other forms of oppression, these principles are not equitably applied to all. In an ideal world, everyone would have equal access to justice and equal protection under the law. Unfortunately, neither the world nor the country is ideal. ACLU's work involves hard subject matter that can be emotionally draining. Candidates for the position of Deputy Director will understand that as a mission-driven organization, the ACLU strives to make the world is a better place knowing that the road is long and hard. At the same time, ACLU understands the importance of self-care, and does its best to reflect that in its practices and values.

This equal employment opportunity policy applies to all aspects of employment, including recruitment, selection, advancement, training, problem resolution, and separation from employment.
