Advocacy Resources

Have you ever found yourself thinking, "Wow, that's terrible. I should do something." after seeing the latest headline about local politics?

Well, you definitely can. We're here to help.

The ACLU of North Dakota has compiled several resources for fine tuning your advocacy skills to make your case with local and national elected officials. We'll show you effective ways on how to incorporate advocacy into your daily life starting today. 

Together, we can improve the lives of North Dakotans, reduce inequities, and spread best practices across the state. 

Please Note: As a local activist, you don’t represent the ACLU of North Dakota as an organization. You represent your own causes as a concerned community member. This is critical to local advocacy. As you work on your campaign(s), your voice will be stronger as representative of your community. If anyone is looking for comment about a formal ACLU of North Dakota position, please contact us.
