The American Civil Liberties Union has been at the forefront of some of the greatest social change movements of the last century. From protecting individual privacy to advancing the rights of LGBT citizens, from advocating for voting rights to battling mass incarceration, the organization has a rich history from its earliest organizing days in 1917.

The ACLU of Ohio is one of more than 50 state groups affiliated with the national ACLU. Each affiliate has a record of social justice accomplishments in its own right. 

The ACLU of Ohio provides a case study of the successes and challenges faced by nonprofit organizations in managing their historically significant records.

During your visit, Deputy Director Ann Rowlett, MLIS, will present the Ohio ACLU’s efforts to preserve its history through a variety of records management and archival practices and procedures. We also benefit from the guidance and resources of our national organization’s archives staff. 

We will also discuss the ACLU of Ohio’s role in historically significant legal cases, such as the Sam Sheppard murder trial and the Kent State May 4, 1970 shootings. 

A variety of historical materials will be on display.
