Our organization and more than a dozen others sent a letter to the United States Department of Justice to formally request the agency investigate the Vancouver Police Department (VPD) and Clark County Sheriff's Office. It’s a request we don’t make lightly, but given the situation in southwest Washington, it’s time for a new approach.
With Hispanic Heritage Month recently coming to an end, the ACLU of Washington wanted to highlight the work of organizations that advocate for Latinx communities throughout the state. We asked three of the state’s organizations how the pandemic has impacted their work and how others can help.
We are currently hiring for Winter 2021-2022 and Spring 2022 internships or externships. A minimum commitment of 16 hours per week is required during the school year. While this position is uncompensated, the ACLU-WA will work with students to obtain course credit for work performed during the academic year.
