Liberty. Equality. Due process. Freedom from cruel and unusual punishment. Freedom of speech and thought. The ability to participate in shaping our democracy. These are the promises of the U.S. Constitution, but whether you experience them depends largely on who you are.  

The ACLU of Washington is a non-partisan civil liberties organization dedicated to protecting and advancing freedom, equity, and justice for everyone in Washington.  

We envision a future where everyone in Washington, particularly those who have been historically and systematically disenfranchised, lives with dignity and equity, enjoying freedoms unimpeded by racial and economic injustice and other forms of oppression.    

We invest our resources in four subject areas critical to the future of civil rights and liberties in Washington: 

  • The criminal legal system
  • Individual and personal rights and autonomy
  • Racial and economic justice 
  • Democracy

Please Give BIG, AND not just to us. 

Simply put, the ACLU could not do its work without the partnership of our countless on-the-ground allies. Every single one of them helps make our community more fair and just. 

In the spirit of philanthropy, we hope that you will give to the ACLU this year AND donate to some of our amazing allies.

United Territories of Pacific Islanders Alliance, also known as UTOPIA is a queer and trans people of color-led, grassroots organization born out of the struggles, challenges, strength, and resilience of the Queer and Trans Pacific Islander (QTPI – “Q-T-pie”) community in Washington State. Since 2009, UTOPIA has worked with QTPI leaders to create a safe, welcoming, supportive, and vibrant space for members of the community to address basic needs, build pathways toward new expanded career and life opportunities, foster a sense of common purpose, and advocate for social justice, education, and overall wellness among members of the Pacific Islander LGBTQI community. UTOPIA also seeks to build trust and common ground as a convener and bridge-builder between the Pacific Islander community and the LGBTQI community, who often share many of the same issues and concerns. 

Huy provides economic, educational, rehabilitative, and religious support for Indigenous prisoners in the Pacific Northwest and throughout the United States. Huy primarily raises monies and receives gifts, to in turn be gifted, for the benefit of such American Indigenous prisoners. 

To carry out those goals, Huy partners with tribal governments, state government corrections and other agencies, higher educational institutions, non-profit and charitable entities, privately owned businesses, and compassionate American citizens.
