Young Professionals

The NYCLU Young Professionals is a group of motivated young New Yorkers who have an interest in protecting civil liberties and the work of the NYCLU. Our mission is to recruit, engage, and retain young professionals to actively serve the needs of the NYCLU in defending and promoting New Yorkers’ civil liberties. Our singular goal is to support the NYCLU’s efforts in litigation, advocacy, public education, and community organizing while creating a new generation of civil liberties leaders.

Join us for our monthly happy hours, dinners, NYCLU discussion series, and ongoing special events throughout the year to meet and connect with other like-minded young professionals and support the mission of the NYCLU.



Donate to the Young Professionals. Contributions to the New York Civil Liberties Union are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.


For just $35 we will send you a Young Professionals Membership Card which will give you automatic membership to both the NYCLU and ACLU, as well as special access to YP events and discounts to socially conscious businesses. All you need to do is flash your card!

Please join us for the NYCLU’s bi-monthly Discussion Series which take place on the second Tuesday of every other month. Our Happy Hours and Dinners take place on the third Thursday of every other month. Check the calendar for updates!
