The ACLU of South Carolina works in the legislature, in the courtroom, and in the community to protect and expand the rights of LGBTQ people. 

In the Legislature

Presently, there are over 300 anti-LGBTQ bills filed in state legislatures nationwide. Nearly 20 of them were filed here in South Carolina, and focus on censoring discussion of LGBTQ issues in schools, banning access to gender affirming care for transgender children and young adults, or seek to circumvent laws that protect LGBTQ people from discrimination.

In The Community

We are proud members of SC United for Justice and Equality. The coalition advocates for the passage of legislation to protect LGBTQ community members and opposes anti-LGBTQ legislation. The coalition also works on intersecting issues of social justice, including racial justice, reproductive justice, voting rights, and health care access.
