ACLU Files Suit against the City of Indianapolis

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WOWO): The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana filed a class action lawsuit against the city of Indianapolis on behalf of four people, who were ordered to move by police for requesting donations.

Earlier this week the four individuals were asking for contributions near Circle Centre Mall, by holding up signs.

ACLU of Indiana Legal Director Ken Falk said, “The First Amendment protects the rights of all people to ask for contributions, whether they are seeking political donations or asking for assistance for poor people on city sidewalks. This case seeks to vindicate a right that is fundamentally important for all.”
