In this article, the writer notes that the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is one of the oldest civil rights organizations in the nation. The writer maintains that by the very virtue of its long held traditions it might be tempting for its general communications to eliminate basic information about its goals and objectives, yet, within its web presence is a demonstrative mission, that explains its goals and objectives. The writer points out that the ACLU wishes to uphold the constitutional Bill of Rights and extend these rights to historically disenfranchised peoples. The writer discusses that its goals are clearly set by outlining the basic rights of the constitution and its objectives are to go about doing this in a manner that reflects these rights upon every individual American, as well as all people that America comes into contact with.
