Created in 1920, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is a non-profit and nonpartisan organization. Tasked with defending United States First Amendment rights, the ACLU is rooted in a firm belief of the “preservation of individual rights and liberties guaranteed to every person in this country by the Constitution and laws of the United States.” Through litigation and lobbying, the ACLU strives to promote free speech and equality, with over one million members representing clients from all 50 states.
ACLU is a committee suited for experienced delegates, but is open to delegates of all experience levels wishing to challenge their capacity as delegates. Position papers are strongly recommended for this committee, but are mandatory for delegates to be considered for awards. Please read about CAHSMUN’s Position Paper policy, which can be found under the list of committees on the “Committees” page.
Questions, inquiries, and position papers for this committee can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yi Han | Director
Yi Han is a Grade 12 IB student at Semiahmoo Secondary school and is delighted to serve as Director for ACLU. Aside from writing generic bios for MUN conferences and going through generic social, academic, and athletic activities, Yi enjoys spicing up his life by reading philosophy at 4 AM in the morning to learn the wisdoms of life and wasting his free time playing Hearts of Iron IV. In mastering such vicious cycle of living, MUN has become a highlight of his time on Earth, teaching him the social skills needed to integrate himself in society and discovering the world outside of the liminal purgatory known as his room. In all seriousness, Yi is excited for the conference and looks forward to seeing everyone at CAHSMUN 2019.
Andrew Campbell | Chair
Andrew is a senior attending Saint George’s School in Vancouver. When not studying, frantically or otherwise, he enjoys volunteering inside and outside of the community, reading about the Second Boer War, associating with friends, and expanding his horizons through the miracles of YouTube. CAHSMUN 2019 will be Andrew's last MUN conference, being the end of a career that stretches back all the way to the 6th Grade where he represented Japan. He is proud and pleased to be serving as your Chair of the ACLU, and hopes that everyone will enjoy the conference as much as he knows he will.
