The ACLU is a private, non-profit, membership organization. Our mission is to preserve and extend constitutional rights through participation in legislation, litigation and community education. We usually become involved in cases (either by representing a party or submitting a "friend of the court" brief) only when we believe that we can advance civil liberties through a change in law or policy. And, since the constitution is designed to protect people from abuse of power by the government, the ACLU primarily challenges the government, rather than private organizations or individuals. If possible, we encourage you to visit our state and national websites for more information about the scope of the ACLU's work.

If you wish to request assistance from the ACLU, we strongly urge you to submit a complaint online using the form below. You may also write to us at 2966 Woodward Ave., Detroit, MI 48201.

The complaint form below reflects the type of information that is necessary for us to review your complaint, and it can be written on a separate sheet. Try to be as detailed as possible, and provide documentation to support your claim. Please be advised that, due to limited storage space, we do not maintain closed files in our office.
