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 →
Far-left rioters attacked law enforcement officials in Chicago on Friday night who rushed in to protect a statue of Christopher Columbus that the rioters were trying to destroy.
Last week the Supreme Court ruled in favor of religious liberty for the Little Sisters of the Poor and Our Lady of Guadalupe School. One decision upheld the right of religious groups to be exempt from providing contraceptive and the abortion coverage, and the other confirmed that faith based schools can make faith based hiring decisions.

In this piece by The Heritage Foundation President and champion of liberty Kay James, she notes that violent mobs—permitted to riot by spineless politicians—are not just breaking stuff, they are trying to destroy the very core of our democracy and our freedoms. She pulls no punches in identifying the dangers of “mobocracy” and calls for officials to take action and citizens to step in to make sure they do.
Another liberal city is attempting to restrict the rights of its lawful, gun owning citizens to arm themselves in public. Although Virginia has a right to open carry law, the city of Newport News doesn’t want to honor it and will vote on a restrictive new law in mid-July. Gun grabbers learned that a national gun grab is too loud and obvious, so they chip away at the local level. Heads up; don’t let them.
Many local and state officials ignored rioters and looters who pretended to care about racial injustice while destroying homes, monuments, and businesses. Liberal officials are now discovering the cost of their cowardly failure to enforce rule of law above mindless mob violence and turning to the president they fight at every turn for a bailout. The answer, so far, seems to be “you made your nest; now pay for it.”
Liberals have made quick use of the coronavirus crisis to promote all manner of policy prescriptions that, under less dire circumstances, would be ignored or lamented by conservatives. The left’s latest gambit is the George Soros-backed vote-by-mail scheme, which promises an election cycle ripe for fraud.
