Tens of thousands of New Yorkers like you have teamed up with the New York Civil Liberties Union since Trump’s election. Many followed individual paths to join together for this singular fight against the unprecedented perils of the Trump administration.

Read our annual report to find out how passionate activists like you united with the NYCLU to protect New York’s values and to push an agenda that will keep our state a civil liberties model for the nation.

The report lays out just how dramatically we’ve grown — from 100 volunteers in 2016 to 10,000 in 2017, and a membership base that’s increased from 68,000 to 170,000 people.

Donald Trump has shaken American norms and institutions to their core. It’s clear his aim is to divide us.
