To defend the Constitution and keep America safe and free, the ACLU of Arizona needs the support of every Arizonan who cares about protecting our precious civil liberties.  You can help defend the traditional American values enshrined in the Bill of Rights by supporting the work of the American Civil Liberties Union, and its local affiliate, the American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona. The ACLU of Arizona was formed and officially chartered by the national organization 45 years ago. Since that time, we have fought to defend individual rights in Arizona through litigation, legislation, and public education.

In the Arizona where Kyrsten Sinema grew up, strong schools and tight-knit communities meant opportunity for future generations. The hard-working middle class could get ahead, and government was there to help ensure that opportunity for all who were willing to work hard and play by the rules. 

At her Arizona office, interns may be asked to do a variety of things, including day-to-day office work such as answering phones, writing letters and assisting with media clips. In addition, interns may be assigned to assist in various constituent casework or work on District-based projects of importance.
