American Constitutional Society for Law and Policy

American Constitutional Society believes that the Constitution is “of the people, by the people, and for the people.”

ACS interprets the Constitution based on its text and against the backdrop of history and lived experience. Through a diverse nationwide network of progressive lawyers, law students, judges, scholars and many others, ACS works to uphold the Constitution in the 21st Century by ensuring that law is a force for protecting our democracy and the public interest and for improving people’s lives.
