HELP DEFEND LIBERTY AND JUSTICE
The American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri (ACLU of Missouri) has been on the frontline where many civil liberties battles are fought and opportunities to advance civil liberties are first revealed.
We depend on contributions from generous individuals who are committed to advancing freedom in Missouri. Your contribution allows us to immediately respond to civil liberties assaults in our state.

The ACLU of Missouri Foundation does not support legislative lobbying, which cannot, by law, be supported by tax-deductible funds.

Contributions may be mailed to ACLU of Missouri, 906 Olive St., Suite 1130, St. Louis, MO 63101.

BECOME A MEMBER OF THE ACLU
Lobbying activity at the Missouri Legislature is supported through memberships. Membership in the ACLU is not tax-deductible. When you join or renew as a “dues-paying member,” you will receive a membership card from the national ACLU, headquartered in New York, New York, as a tangible symbol of your commitment to civil liberties issues.
Please Note: Becoming a member of the ACLU automatically makes you a member of the National ACLU plus the ACLU of Missouri. As a member, you will be informed about cutting edge issues, upcoming events, and special opportunities from the ACLU of Missouri and the national ACLU. A membership with the ACLU is good for one year, after that you will need to renew your membership on a yearly basis. You will receive a notification from the National ACLU when it is time to do so. Your renewal month stays the same from year to year even if you pay early or late. All membership dues are shared equally between the ACLU of Missouri and National ACLU.
Memberships can be made online via a secure website.
Contributions may be mailed to MEMBERSHIP, ACLU, 125 Broad Street, 18th Floor, New York NY 10004, or over the telephone to 1-888-567-2258.
