ACLU of Arizona opens office in Tucson

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - The ACLU of Arizona recently opened an office in Tucson. The main office is in Phoenix, but the organization is looking to strengthen its presence in southern Arizona.

According to the ACLU, there are 21,000 members in Arizona, nearly 7,000 of them live in southern Arizona.

“Our growing staff presence in Tucson will significantly extend the reach of the ACLU of Arizona,” said Alessandra Soler, ACLU of Arizona executive director. 

Staff Attorney Billy Peard will be based in the Tucson office. Peard grew up in Tucson and joined the ACLU of Arizona in May.

“I look forward to collaborating with our community partners to keep federal, state, and local government accountable to all those who call southern Arizona home,” Peard said.

The ACLU works to preserve and defend civil liberties.
