Giving Tuesday is about seizing the opportunity to make a difference. Your support helps us build a stronger, more inclusive Virginia through key initiatives like our brand new Immigrants' Rights Project.
We believe the people closest to the issues have the best solutions. Today we are asking you to support the ACLU of Virginia, including our new immigrants' rights work, and to also consider a gift to other organizations that have long been doing this work.
Support from people like you is what makes our work possible.
