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.
BACKGROUNDERS will be available soon
Alison Lee | Director
Currently a junior at West Point Grey Academy, Alison is thrilled to be directing the American Civil Liberties Union. Since attending her first Model UN conference over a year ago, she has and continues to be inspired by the passionate individuals around her and hopes to inspire others to immerse themselves in the incredibly rewarding activity as well. Aside from Model UN, Alison can be found within walking distance of bubble tea shops, trying and failing to understand basic math, and struggling to keep her plants alive. In the rare cases that she attempts to be productive, Alison enjoys writing slam poetry, debating competitively, and reading humorous self-help books. Alison looks forward to a weekend packed with pragmatic debate and collaboration and is ecstatic to meet 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.
