The American Constitutional Rights Union (ACRU) Action Fund is dedicated to defending the constitutionally-protected civil rights of all Americans.

While many other organizations, such as the ACLU, are intent on shifting court decisions and public opinion against American values, we work every day to safeguard the liberties enshrined in our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

The ACRU Action Fund stands against harmful, anti-constitutional ideologies that have taken hold in our nation’s courts, culture, and bureaucracies. We defend and promote free speech, religious liberty, the Second Amendment, American values, and our national sovereignty.

We hope you will join us in the fight to protect America, the best and last hope for freedom. Your donations will make a difference.

ACRU Commentary

Walter Williams — A Warrior For Liberty!

Patriot. Friend. Teacher. Student. Husband. Father. Legendary thinker. Christ follower. On this day of profound mourning for Professor Walter E. Williams, it is difficult to summarize the life and legacy of my friend with only a few words.

ACRU Action VP of Policy Kerri Toloczko: There is no freedom without honest vote counting

“World history makes it clear that the final nail in liberty’s coffin for any people is when their political voices are stolen through institutionalized fraud orchestrated by leftist elites and their pawns. When the right to free and honest elections is removed from voters, there is no avenue left to fight for other basic rights. America must never accept vote fraud, and we must rely on our state elected officials to protect this most sacred trust.”

ACRU Action Board Member Ken Blackwell: Legislators, not jurists, are responsible for vote integrity

“In Pennsylvania, there was a clear violation of Article II of Constitution that gives authority to state legislatures to set the calendar and electoral rules for the state’s voters - not the state judiciary, not the Governor, and not the Secretary of State. In other states, liberal lawsuits waved through by liberal judges usurped the power of the people by dismantling vote security measures passed by their state legislators. This must be corrected, and state legislative bodies must reclaim their authority to protect voters against fraud, political criminals and activist judges that overreach. A recent article from The Federalist, noted below, provides a few simple steps legislators can take to ensure the integrity of the election process.”

ACRU’s Professor Walter Williams: The Census is not a tool for vote fraud

Noting the obvious — only US citizens can vote in US elections — ACRU Policy Board Member Walter Williams is concerned that, “counting illegal immigrants in the census undermines (the) fundamental principle that every citizen-voter has an equal voice.” It is indeed a dangerous road. Walter references Hans von Spakovky’s work in his article, and we are grateful to have them both on team ACRU.

ACRU Letter to Chancellor Green, University of Nebraska-Lincoln re: Drastic COVID Measures

January 13, 2021

Chancellor Ronnie Green
Office of the Chancellor
University of Nebraska-Lincoln
1400 R Street
Lincoln, NE 68588

Re: Enhanced COVID Safety Measures for Spring 2021

Dear Chancellor Green:

I am writing on behalf of American Constitutional Rights Union (ACRU) in conjunction with Students for Liberty, which has an organized student chapter on your campus and on campuses around the world. ACRU is an organization committed to defending the constitutional rights of every American, including students. As you are aware, as a public institution, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is obligated to act within the confines of the Constitution and protect the rights of every one of the students it serves.

We were recently contacted by students enrolled at your University who are concerned about the “Enhanced COVID Safety Measures for Spring 2021” disseminated by you in an e-mail dated December 9, 2020. They believe – and rightly so – that the mandatory testing and proposed application required to be utilized by students to display the results of those tests as a precursor to entry into any campus building violates their rights.

While we understand and appreciate the University’s desire to protect the health and safety of all students and faculty, this cannot come at the cost of those same individuals’ constitutionally protected and other legal rights. ACRU trusts that once you understand the legal impediments to the University’s proposed measures, you will change your mind about implementation so that your students’ rights are protected and the need for litigation is avoided.

First, we examine the University’s proposed protocols in the context of the Fourth Amendment. “The Fourth Amendment requires government to respect ‘the right of the people to be secure in their persons . . . against unreasonable searches and seizures.’” Chandler v Miller, 520 U.S. 305, 308 (1997). It is irrefutable that such an analysis is proper since capturing bodily fluid from a person has been deemed by the United States Supreme Court to fall within this scope of review (see, e.g., Skinner v. Ry. Labor Executives’ Assn., 489 U.S. 602 [1989]), and, in fact, such widespread testing of a student body has been struck down by the Eighth Circuit in Kittle-Aikeley v Strong, 844 F.3d 727 (8th Cir. 2016).

Likewise, the tracking of movement, which you intend to do of students by mandating your “passport” app, constitutes a search that falls under the Fourth Amendment. See, e.g., United States v Jones, 565 U.S. 400 (2012). “To be reasonable…a search ordinarily must be based on individualized suspicion of wrongdoing.” Chandler v Miller, 520 U.S. 305, 313 (1997). These students have done nothing wrong and mandating bodily fluids from them, disclosure of their private medical information, and retaining and tracking this medical information as well as their movements via unspecified technology as a precondition to them attending classes they have already registered and paid for is not only unconstitutional but also unconscionable.

Your attempt to undermine or circumvent these students’ Fourth Amendment rights by coercing their consent in the form of a checkbox that must be marked in order to access your […]

Congratulations to incoming congressional conservatives

The incoming freshman class on Capitol Hill includes historic firsts for conservative members who promise to stand firm against government overreach while protecting individual and economic liberty. So far, this movement is led by new GOP members from diverse backgrounds that have provided them with an understanding of tyranny and the danger of socialism, including three Cuban-Americans, an Iranian-American, and a Ukrainian American.

Will liberal politicos appoint black-robed henchmen?

Sometimes it's best just to quote a well-written article, like this one by Cato Institute’s Doug Bandow on the upcoming fight for a Constitutional judiciary: “left-wing jurisprudence means making everything up as one goes along. The Constitution and written laws are irrelevant. Judges decide what new rules they want to implement that day. What injustice must be remedied? What practices should be proscribed? What conduct should be mandated?”

Mr. Bean and cancel culture’s “medieval mob”

Who would have expected Mr. Bean to be the oracle of anti-cancel culture wisdom, but in a recent interview, British actor Rowan Atkinson brilliantly noted the absurd dangers of allowing a one-sided, biased algorithm created by liberal control freaks to decide who wins or loses within society. Mr. Bean may have been canceled, but Mr. Atkinson clearly has not.

Euthanasia by bureaucrats in LA

The first right in America’s first founding document is “life.” Yet Los Angeles County is instructing paramedics to withhold treatment and hospital transport from COVID patients perceived as in end stages of life. This is morally reprehensible for the patient—and for paramedics who dedicate their lives to saving others, and should not be forced to make decisions of who lives or dies. This puts LA in its own hideous class of COVID crisis tyrants.

Teaching liberty during this oppressive lockdown and beyond

COVID created a nation of homeschooling parents. We fully understand that for many families, this has been difficult. It also presents new opportunities for parents to teach kids lessons in civics and actual history, as opposed to teachers unions’ slanted and revised history.

Would you like a side of worship with that?

ACRU recently defended an Anne Arundel, MD pastor fined by the health department for not wearing a mask in an empty building. Now a local judge is questioning county officials about their desire to put local restaurants out of business. Restaurants have paid lobbyists and lawyers; churches don't. We hope local courts will take notice of their loss of liberty as well, soon, even without the paid influence.

“If you see me in DC, say hi. You’re safe with me.”

The right to bear arms is enshrined in our Constitution. Liberals treat it as a policy issue rather than a right and pass laws blocking individual right to self-defense. Freshman Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is challenging DC gun laws that only allow unloaded guns in Congressional offices and none on the streets. We expect the DC government to take legal action. This may end in a Supreme Court challenge.
