About People Power Beer
For nearly a century the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has defended our constitution in the courts. In 2017, they coupled those legal efforts with People Power, a grassroots movement to galvanize meaningful policy change at both the local and national levels. This initiative was designed to empower people with the tools and capacity to organize locally, to work against grave threats to our civil liberties.
People Power Beer is an inspired, diverse, and united portfolio of craft beer and activations by the nation’s craft breweries produced to help support the ACLU’s tireless efforts to protect the rights of all.
