Topics addressed will highlight civil liberties priorities such as restoring voting rights for former felons, the future of artificial intelligence, and the fight for transgender rights.

In addition to the speaking program, the conference will feature an Action Center where attendees can take immediate action on legislation and high-profile issues, learn about current and upcoming ACLU campaigns and programs, build advocacy and organizing skills and share their story of why they are an ACLU member and volunteer. The conference will conclude with a lobby day on Capitol Hill.
