An inside look at the legal battles that lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union are waging during the Trump administration. When a mother is separated from her child, a soldier is threatened with the loss of his career, a young woman’s right to choose is imperiled at the pleasure of a government official, and the ability to exercise our basic right to vote is threatened, the consequences can be devastating to us and to future generations. The Fight celebrates the unsung heroes who fiercely work to protect our freedoms.
