    American Civil Liberties Union Before 1920 the U.S. Supreme Court had never upheld a single free speech claim under the First Amendment. Civil rights activists were thrown into jail for distributing anti-war literature, minorities were suspected of political radicalism, and there were no rights for gays and lesbians, the poor, and many other groups in the United States; segregation was part of our society.

    With the exception of the U.S. Department of Justice, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) appears before the U.S. Supreme Court more than any other organization.
