Our goal is to ensure that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender North Dakotans can live openly without discrimination and enjoy equal rights, personal autonomy, and freedom of expression and association. The ACLU has a long history of defending the LGBT community, with historic wins around marriage rights at the U.S. Supreme Court and in states around the country.
The ACLU brings more LGBT cases and advocacy initiatives than any other national organization. There is no other organization that can match our record of making progress both in the courts of law and in the court of public opinion. LGBT people are not legally protected from discrimination federally or in North Dakota. Through litigation, lobbying, public education, and organizing, we work to advance LGBT rights, bringing us closer to the promise of full equality for all.
