Teresa Nelson, Legal Director, ACLU of Minnesota

Civil Liberties in the Trump Era


Teresa Nelson is Legal Director of the ACLU of Minnesota where she leads the organization’s constitutional law litigation program and engages in non-litigation legal advocacy to advance civil liberties in Minnesota. Nelson is a 1996 graduate of Hamline University School of Law. She has been with the ACLU-MN since 1996, having previously served as Legal Assistant and Assistant Legal Counsel. She is a frequent Continuing Legal Education presenter, currently, serves on the State Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights and is a member of the Advisory Board for the Minneapolis-St. Paul Lawyer Chapter of the American Constitution Society (ACS). Terri also serves as an adjunct faculty member at Mitchell│Hamline School of Law.     

The ACLU has called President Trump a one-man constitutional crisis. The civil liberties threats posed by the new administration are unprecedented. Teresa will talk about the ACLU's work both nationally and here in Minnesota to protect civil liberties in these difficult times.
