Free speech, privacy, and technology are inextricably linked. The right to free expression is a fundamental right, and the ACLU-NJ has a long history of protecting and strengthening this freedom. As technology advances, however, our First Amendment rights and rights to privacy face unprecedented threats based on the extraordinary amount of information available to the government and corporations.   

The ACLU-NJ is committed to defending free speech in more familiar channels, as well as taking on new challenges as technology makes public what we have a right to keep private and threatens to curtail our rights to free speech and expression.
