About Us

Today, America’s values, our constitutional heritage, and the freedoms and opportunities of our people are being undermined by a narrow, conservative approach to the law that lacks appropriate regard for the ways in which the law affects people’s lives. This conservative vision, which is advanced by a highly organized movement and has come to dominate American law and public policy – from law school classrooms to legislative hearing rooms and federal courtrooms – threatens to undermine the true promise of our Constitution.

ACS is committed to fostering a progressive vision of the law on issues across the policy spectrum, including access to the courts; antidiscrimination and affirmative action; civil liberties; consumer rights; criminal justice; disability rights; freedom of speech; gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender rights; international human rights; immigration; open government; labor law; the political process; privacy; protection of health, safety, and the environment; and women’s rights and reproductive freedom.
