No in-office appointments. Get Help through:

(1) Civil Rights Complaint Line: (443) 524-2558, Tuesdays and Thursdays, 1:00pm - 3:00pm

Non-attorney, Intake Specialists will record all your information and provide you with as much information as possible, but cannot provide legal advice. If an Intake Specialist determines that the issue is one that our office may be able to assist you with, the information will be relayed to our staff attorneys. If an Intake Specialist feels we are not able to assist you in your particular matter, we will try to provide you with helpful referrals.

(2) Contact in Writing:

  • Mail: 3600 Clipper Mill Road, Ste. 350, Baltimore, MD 21211
  • Fax: (410)-366-7838

Instructions: Please write us a letter 1-5 pages in length following the guidelines listed below: Include your name, mailing address, and phone number so that we may contact you. We do not require supporting documentation be sent, nor can we return any back to you, so you should NOT send us original copies of any documents. You can mention any supporting evidence you have in your letter and we will contact you if we need to examine it.

Although we try to respond quickly to requests, it can take weeks or even months for us to determine whether we can assist you. If you are facing an immediate deadline, you should contact a private attorney for assistance.

The following questions may help you in writing your letter:

  • If your complaint involves a specific incident or series of incidents, what happened? Who was involved? Where and when did it happen? Were there witnesses, and are they willing to tell us what they saw?

  • In what way do you believe your rights were violated? Why do you believe this incident occurred?

  • What kind of resolution are you seeking? What would you like the ACLU-MD to do on your behalf?

  • Have you filed an administrative complaint or appeal? If so, has there been an outcome?

  • Have you contacted an attorney or other source of legal assistance? What was the result? Are you currently represented by an attorney? If so, have you told your attorney that you have requested our assistance? Will you authorize us to speak with her/him?

  • Are you aware of any deadlines you might be facing?
