ACLU is a non-profit, non-partisan group of people who believe in the power of action. In the years afterward, the ACLU has grown from a small group of idealists to become the nation's foremost defender of constitutional liberties. The ACLU of today continues to fight government abuse and to vigorously defend individual freedoms such as speech and religion, a woman's right to choose, the right to due process, citizens' rights to privacy, and much more, with more than 1.7 million members, 500 staff attorneys, thousands of volunteer attorneys, and offices across the country. Even when the cause is small, and when no one else would, the ACLU stands up for these rights. They are hiring deputy national legal director, accounting manager, associate corporate council, IT support analyst and senior associate corporate council.
