The Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments protect everyone’s right to due process of law. This right is foundational; when the government denies fair treatment to particular individuals or operates with unfair procedures, it makes it impossible to enforce the other rights guaranteed by the Constitution. The ACLU works to protect our rights to due process everywhere in settings as varied as the local courts, federal workplaces, schools, and Guantanamo and Afghanistan.
