PROTECTING THE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS OF ALL AMERICANS
The American Constitutional Rights Union (ACRU) is dedicated to defending the constitutionally-protected civil rights of all Americans.
While many other organizations, such as the ACLU, are intent on shifting court decisions and public opinion against American values, we work every day to safeguard the liberties enshrined in our Constitution and Bill of Rights.
We hope you will join us in the fight to protect America, the best and last hope for freedom. Your donations will make a difference.

ACRU becomes the American Constitutional Rights Union
ACRU is proud to announce an organizational name change from American Civil Rights Union to American CONSTITUTIONAL Rights Union as we continue to honor the legacy of founder Bob Carleson to “to defend constitutionally-protected rights of all Americans.” As President Lori Roman notes, “we were created as an antidote to the ACLU. We can think of no better way to punctuate that ACRU is the true defender of individual and economic freedoms that are unique and fundamental to our nation than to include “Constitution” in our name.”
ACRU ACTION: POLITICAL COURAGE NEEDED →
A signed pledge should be binding, unless you’re a Democrat elector in Washington and Colorado trying to manipulate the system to block the election of Donald Trump in 2016. On July 6, in a rare unanimous decision, the Supreme Court ruled states can enforce electoral pledges ignored by rogue political activists. This is a win not just for voters, but affirms the critical need for the electoral college itself. Note: the importance of the Electoral College to our democracy can be confusing, and the anti-electoral college National Popular Vote movement peddles a great deal of disinformation about its intent. For a precise and clear understanding of why we must defend the Electoral College, we recommend the book, “Why We Need the Electoral College” by Tara Ross. Mrs. Ross has also written “We Elect a President: The Story of Our Electoral College” to help children understand this important institution. Source: SCOTUS demands faith from faithless electors
Our country is under attack from radical leftists. Mobs rampage through our streets, monuments are being destroyed, and the very law and order that ensures our communities’ peace and security is being undermined.
State lawmakers returned to work Monday in a state Capitol battered by four days of protests. The building and surrounding monuments have been defaced with graffiti, and windows along the lowest floor were boarded up with plywood. Some windows on the second floor of the Capitol were also smashed with rocks. A state employee told legislative leaders that the offices of Gov. Jared Polis and his chief of staff both had broken windows.
Councilman Ryan Dorsey of Baltimore made a very public request to tear down a memorial to fallen Baltimore police officers. On the link at the end of this paragraph, you can download a copy of our Protect Monument Action Pledge for officials and send it to Mr. Dorsey, or your own local politicians. Ask them to sign it. Put them on the spot. And then let us know if they have signed - or not.
The headline is misleading. As far as we can tell from the article, there weren't any counter protesters or white nationalists at the park. The militia members addressed their comments to people who were not there.
