Historical Note

The Fort Worth Civil Liberties Union, a chapter of the Texas Civil Liberties Union, was established in 1964. The Texas Civil Liberties Union is a part of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which was established in 1920, by a group of civil libertarians who were concerned about the wartime policies of President Woodrow Wilson. The ACLU is made up of over 500,000 members who belong to 53 regional chapters. The mission of the organization is to ensure that the government adheres to the Bill of Rights, especially on the First Amendment, the Fourteenth Amendment rights to equal protection and due process, and the implicit right to privacy. Each chapter is governed by an elected volunteer board of directors, who hire an executive director and other paid staff. In most chapters, this includes at least two attorneys.
