The New Hampshire Civil Liberties Union was founded to defend those freedoms which are guaranteed to every individual by the Bill of Rights of the United States Constitution. Throughout history, frequent attempts have been made to curtail the civil liberties of groups with radical or unpopular positions or associations. The NHCLU is often the only organization able to act to protect those who would otherwise stand alone in defense of their Constitutional rights in New Hampshire.The NHCLU and its Foundation have three principal objectives in the fight to preserve civil liberties:
•Representation of people whose rights have been violated;
•Education of citizens concerning their civil liberties under the Constitution;
•Challenges to laws which infringe on individual freedom
