Each episode features information on campaigns, events, and actions that you can take right now to protect your rights. Special episodes include Know Your Rights trainings, client profiles, and interviews with the lawmakers who fight for our civil liberties in one of the last true purple states.

Best local podcast!!
The Purple State Report
Thank you, ACLU, for pointing what we can do at the local level to protect our rights. It's often difficult to know what's happening at the local level. From now on I will listen to all your podcasts. If I hear a podcast that affects my city, county, or representative, I will certainly contact them and voice my concerns.
