The ACLU of Maine seeks to end excessively harsh criminal justice policies that disproportionately affect poor people and people of color and stand in the way of a just and equal society. We are working to reform police practices, the indigent defense system, disproportionate sentencing and government abuse of authority in the name of fighting crime, as well as drug laws that have failed to improve public safety and health and have put an unprecedented number of people behind bars.
