Get Help

If you believe your civil rights or civil liberties have been violated in Virginia and are seeking legal help, fill out our online intake form.

Please note that the ACLU is neither a government agency nor a general legal services organization, and we typically do not provide emergency services. The ACLU of Virginia receives thousands of requests for assistance each year, and we are unable to pursue most cases that come to our attention. We will contact you if we need additional information about your submission.

You can also download our intake form here and mail or fax it to our office.

If you are seeking help for a problem that occurred in another state, please see the national directory of ACLU offices.
