Starting a Campus Chapter

So you’re thinking about starting an NYCLU Campus Chapter in your school?
NYCLU Student Chapters work to educate their fellow students and school communities about their rights and current threats to civil liberties on and off campus. These student-run organizations also monitor local and national issues and take part in advocacy efforts to promote civil rights and liberties. If you’d like to form your own student chapter in your school, we’ve got all you need to get started.
Before you proceed to form your own chapter, check out our Current Chapters to see if your school already has one, and to see what other campus chapters have done. Once you do that, you’ll be ready to go!
