The ACLU of Wisconsin is offering the 2021 Summer Justice Institute for high school students July 19 through 30 in a hybrid format! That means we will be doing a mixed in-person and digital format to help accommodate the fast changing health landscape.  

Each summer for the past three years, the ACLU of Wisconsin, in partnership with community groups and leaders, has provided approximately 40 high school students (including incoming freshman), a FREE two-week intensive camp experience teaching essential leadership and social justice issues, skills and techniques for civic engagement. At the Summer Justice Institute (SJI) students will become experts on the issues currently being confronted in Wisconsin today.
