Volunteers are the backbone of the ACLU. From volunteer attorneys and speakers, to people who help around the office or table at community events, volunteers make the ACLU’s work to protect and extend civil liberties and civil rights possible.
The ACLU of Oregon plans and executes many fundraising and community events throughout the year. If you are interested in helping with marketing and promotions and/or at events, or want to learn more about roles and responsibilities, please fill out our event volunteer interest form. At this time, we are recruiting volunteers for the Uncensored Celebration in Portland on October 4.
Please fill out our volunteer attorney interest form.
Virtually all of the ACLU's legal work is handled by cooperating attorneys. Cooperating attorneys assist with legal research, advocacy and litigation. They may also be asked to speak about civil liberties issues to schools, community groups and organizations across Oregon.
Law students should check the employment page for legal internship opportunities. All other internship requests will be considered on a case by case basis and could focus in the areas of outreach, development, legal requests, legal research, and volunteer coordination. Interested people should submit a letter of interest and résumé in PDF format to firstname.lastname@example.org.
