About the Fellowship

The ACLU of Ohio-Humanity in Action Fellowship provides one Senior Fellow the opportunity to work with the American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio. The Senior Fellows will work on progressive and civil liberties campaigns in Ohio. The Fellowship is a short-term opportunity for Senior Fellows to gain exposure to policy research, outreach and advocacy over a 2-3 month period.

“This is an extraordinary and important time to work on progressive and civil liberties campaigns in Ohio. The state is under enormous pressure.”


– Mike Brickner, former Senior Policy Director at the ACLU of Ohio

About the ACLU of Ohio

The mission of the American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio is to aid in maintaining and extending constitutional and other fundamental rights, liberties, privileges, and immunities, and to take all legitimate action in furtherance of that objective without political partisanship. The ACLU of Ohio is headquartered at the Max Wohl Civil Liberties Center in Cleveland. The organization also maintains a regional office in Columbus. The ACLU of Ohio has nearly 30,000 members and supporters statewide. Through education, litigation and lobbying, the ACLU seeks to preserve civil liberties for each new generation. The ACLU of Ohio is an affiliate of the national ACLU. Founded in 1920, the national ACLU includes more than 500,000 members in all 50 states, making it the foremost advocate of individual rights in the United States.

The ACLU-Humanity in Action Fellowship is made possible through the support of the Germeshausen Foundation and the ACLU of Ohio.
