Description/Mission Statement:
The ACLU-MO defends civil liberties and the principles of equality and justice in Missouri through its litigation, legislative and public education programs. The ACLU was founded in 1920 as the first public interest law firm of its kind, and is recognized as the country's foremost advocate of individual rights. We base our work largely on the Bill of Rights—the first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution—which, along with state and federal laws, protects certain fundamental rights of individuals against the power of the government and will of the majority. Rights guaranteed in the Bill of Rights include:

First Amendment Rights

These include freedom of speech, association and assembly, freedom of the press, freedom of religion and the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Equal Protection of the Law

The right to equal treatment regardless of race, sex, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, age, disability, or other such classifications. These rights apply to the voting booth, the classroom, the workplace and the courts.

Due Process of the Law

The right to be treated fairly when facing criminal charges or other serious accusations that can result in such penalties as loss of employment, exclusion from school, denial of housing or cut-off of benefits.

The Right To Privacy

The right to a guaranteed zone of personal privacy and autonomy which should not be penetrated by the government or other institutions, like employers, with substantial influence over an individual's rights.

Expanding Those Protections

The ACLU works to extend protection to segments of our population who have traditionally been denied these rights. They include racial minorities, sexual minorities, prisoners, soldiers, people with disabilities and children in the custody of the state.

Benton Park Neighborhood Association (BPNA) The BPNA, a volunteer-based non-profit organization, provides and promotes programs, services and activities aimed at encouraging connections between neighbors and fostering civic involvement in our diverse community. Located in the city, just across I-55 from Anheuser-Busch, the Benton Park Neighborhood is named after St. Louis Missouri's second oldest park. From its beginnings as early as 1836 with the sale of the St. Louis Commons until today, this neighborhood has maintained a prominent place in the city's heritage. With Benton Park's age and architecture, in 1985 it had earned the distinction as the largest historic district in St. Louis when the Landmarks completed a voluminous nomination into the National Register. Benton Park residences include creatives, professionals, small businesses, growing families, singles and retirees. Our volunteer-based neighborhood association, the Benton Park Neighborhood Association (BPNA), works to sustain an informed and active electorate, sound planning, and responsive government that serves the residents and businesses of the Benton Park neighborhood. We are a nonprofit, 501(c)(3), thus, any donation to the BPNA is tax-deductible!

The Campus Kitchens Project is a national organization with kitchens at over 20 schools across the United States. The organization was founded in 2001 based off of the DC Central Kitchen. Their role is to enable students to start their own kitchens on campus to serve meals to the community; this is done through the provision of resources such as grant funding, training, expertise, and the creation of a national network of students that can share their successes and challenges. The Campus Kitchen at Washington University in St. Louis is entirely student-run and provides service leadership opportunities for students while also giving them a chance to take on a central role in fighting hunger in St. Louis. Here at WashU, we salvage leftover food from Trader Joes and Bon Appetit and repurpose it into meals that we then deliver to our clients. Each week, we serve approximately 40 women with mental illnesses at Shalom House, 40 pregnant women and children at Our Ladys Inn, and 90 youth who attend the Alberti Program at the Architecture School. Participation with the Campus Kitchen is a wonderful way to learn and practice cooking skills and meet new people with shared passions, all while working toward reduction of hunger in St. Louis. We encourage anyone with an interest in cooking, fighting food waste, helping others, or simply hanging out with friends to check out one of our shifts.

It is a 6-week course including lessons on proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, exercise, portion sizes and healthy snacking.

The Mr. Wash U. event ultimately serves three purposes. Essentially the show is a contest to select and crown the one undergraduate student who exemplifies the epitome of a Washington University student through any combination of the following: personality, character, integrity, extra-curricular involvement and contribution to the Washington University and extending community. In doing so, the event will unify the undergraduate student body while raising a projected goal of $35,000 to donate to City Faces. The money that Mr. WashU donates every year is the main source of funds for City Faces and could not exist without Mr. WashU. We also aim to educate WashU and the surrounding neighborhood about the social injustice that occurs in St. Louis and which is being addressed by City Faces.

The Night Off Program is a student-run program that provides parents of children with autism a "night off." Night Off understands that caring for a child or children with autism full-time can be extremely demanding and that qualified sitters can be hard to find. This is why, in addition to Autism awareness and education efforts and activities, the Night Off program is dedicated to giving these parents a well-deserved break. We are looking for students who would be willing to volunteer some of their time (at most, one night/month) to sit for a child with autism and his/her siblings free of charge. We are especially in need of students who have experience with autism, but all students are welcome to help. If you do not have experience with children who have autism, you will be paired up with someone who does. The sitting takes place in the family's home; therefore, access to a car is very helpful but also not necessary. If interested, please contact thenightoff@gmail.com.

Veterans for Peace, Inc. (VFP) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) educational and humanitarian organization dedicated to the abolishment of war. STATEMENT OF PURPOSE We, having dutifully served our nation, do hereby affirm our greater responsibility to serve the cause of world peace. To this end we will work, with others: (a) Toward increasing public awareness of the costs of war. (b) To restrain our government from intervening, overtly and covertly, in the internal affairs of other nations (c) To end the arms race and to reduce and eventually eliminate nuclear weapons (d) To seek justice for veterans and victims of war (e) To abolish war as an instrument of national policy. To achieve these goals, members of Veterans For Peace pledge to use non-violent means and to maintain an organization that is both democratic and open with the understanding that all members are trusted to act in the best interests of the group for the larger purpose of world peace. We urge all people who share this vision to join us. Our membership is comprised of veterans from all wars spanning from The Spanish Civil War to the Gulf War. These members are distributed amongst 121 nationwide chapters, and dozens of international affiliations. Our international activities include working with our affiliations in El Salvador, Russia, Canada, Japan, Guatemala, Viet Nam, the Netherlands, Chiapas (Mexico), France, England, Cuba, Nicaragua, Vieques (Puerto Rico), and numerous others. A member of the Nobel-Peace Prize winning Coalition to Ban the Sale and Use of Landmines, VFP has been undertaking arduous tasks since its inception. From bringing medical aid to Central American nations, to evacuating wounded children from war-torn Bosnian hospitals and securing medical treatment elsewhere around the globe, or just sitting down with American high school kids so that they may make choices for themselves based on reality, and not myth. We remain firmly committed to the abolition of war. We know the consequences of American foreign policy because once, at a time in our lives, so many of us carried it out. We find it sad that war seems so delightful, so often, to those that have no knowledge of it. We will proudly, and patriotically, continue to denounce war despite whatever misguided sense of euphoria supports it. 1985 - 2005 Twenty Years of Waging Peace

Locks of Love is a national non-profit organization making wigs for children with long-term medical hair loss. Twice each year (fall and spring) we hold a hair-cutting event where local professional hairstylists donate their time to cut hair. Donors can either get a regular hair cut for $20 or they can get a free cut if they have ten or more inches of hair. The money and the hair is sent to the national Locks of Love headquarters where it will be made into wigs. These wigs are then sold at a very reasonable price, and sometimes even donated to children with hair loss. Normally, wigs made of real hair can cost thousands of dollars. Locks of Love aims to provide the wigs to children for a very low cost. These wigs restore the child's confidence and give them the courage to fight their disease.

The WashU China Care Club is a student run organization dedicated to improving the lives of medically disabled Chinese orphans. We fundraise for orphans' surgeries as well as raise awareness and provide mentorship to local adopted Chinese orphans.

Our group is comprised of four key aspects.

1. Fundraising: Every year, through different events and programs, we fundraise to support a Chinese orphan's medical surgery as well as provide supplies and food for orphans and foster families. 

2. Advocacy: We show documentaries and have awareness projects in order to bring a lot of the problems and hardships orphans in China face to the WashU Community.

3. Mentorship: Every two weeks, we hold "dumplings" playgroups where we teach local adopted Chinese orphans about their Chinese heritage and Chinese culture.  We have games, activities, food, and lots of fun! We are also in the process of starting a one-on-one mentorship program as well as a "Little Chinese school".

4. Summer Internship/Volunteer: Over the summer, we finish off the school year by flying to Beijing, China, and volunteering at the China Care Medical Center for two weeks where we are able to interact and help the nannies with a lot of the Chinese orphans.  It becomes a really rewarding experience for us to finish out our year with!

Voices on Service

"Community service isn’t about padding one’s resume, it isn’t about doing things so thatone might be proud and arrogant about it. But it is the dawning realization ofto the greater understanding our humanity, our fragility and a greaterappreciation of the great lives that so many of us lead and deem to be “normal”– when it pretty much is extraordinary in its own respect relative to manyother individuals around the world."
Alwyn Loh '09
​"Community service puts me out of myself and lets me see a different part of myself, whichis important to me."
​Anna Spelman '10
​"Community service is helping people, but also gaining an understanding about each other and a sense of human compassion."
​Cara Clure '10
​"Community service never feels like a responsibility to me, or an obligation. I love it. Never do I feel better about how I have spent my time than at the end of a dayof service."
​Danielle Hayes '10
​"I have been so blessed in my life. I am so lucky, especially to be at WashU. It’s such an amazing place and, particularly while I’m here, I feel like I need to help other people."
​Deva Estin '10
​"Community service is important to me because I believe that people have a responsibility to provide support for one another."
​Gillian Rappaport '10
​"Community service is important to me for so many reasons! First and foremost, I take pride in knowing that I am helping to positively affect someone’s life. "
Julie Hess '09
"Community service is important to me because it helps people in my community and because it has pushed me to step outside of my comfort zone and take initiative."
Laura Banks '09
​"I believe that a society cannot be truly successful with a mentality that every individual should only worry about themselves and in the end things will workout for the best. Community service is about building a stronger community whether on campus, in your neighborhood, city, state, or any other type of community." 
​Regis Murayi '10

​Achal Upadhyaya '12
​"At this crazy time of change, when I’m supposed to be setting the foundation for my future, I am often nagged by small doubts: “Is that the best choice?

​Alaina Smith '14
​"There are so many people who have to get by with all types of nothing, whether it’s no food, no affection, no education, or no respect. To alleviate any degree of any burden – to make something better – is, for me, the pinnacle of accomplishment and hope."
​Alania Smith '14
​"Community service is the sharing of stories between equals."
​Alania Smith '14

​"The connection and relationship with the community that develops from community service adds an invaluable layer to education."
​Amanda Troillet '11

​​Amee Azad '15

​Christina Durchholz '08

​David Shepard '08

​Emily Silber '09

Ethan Lassiter '13
​"When it comes to community service, sometimes it can be rewarding simply to help raise money for an organization. However, it can be far more fulfilling to establish direct relationships with members of the community that one wishes to become involved with. Direct experiences throughout my college career afected me profoundly as I learned from individuals in St. Louis coming from all walks of life. With direct contact with the community, one oftentimes feels that one receives far more than one gives. Once you do get directly involved with a community, be consistant. Don't give up after a semmester. Keep it up for at least a year or two. You wont reget it."
​Eugenia Legarda '05
​"I view community service primarily as an act of responsibility, and not merely an act of generosity."
​Eve Samborn '11
"I've learned that service is more than helping others. It's about being able to immerse yourself in the culture of the service and the people. That way you get a better grasp of the community and how you're a part of it, and in doing so, take pride in what you do. That's one of the biggest lessons I've learned so far."
Felix Lui '07
​"School comes first, but there are those times when I feel a need to stop the rote memorization of obsolete textbooks. I feel that to be actually living in St.Louis I have to be reaching out to people; we must learn to excel vertically in our studies and horizantally in our experiences to the degree that our potential allows."

It allows us to apply all of the knowledge and skills that we learn in the classroom to real life; service helps us connect to our surroundings.

Kevin Kulshrestha '16

“For the past two years I have spent all of my time in the city of St. Louis, including the summers, and it has quickly progressed from ‘where I attend college’ to ‘home.’ A large part of the sense of community I feel with the St. Louis area comes from my involvement in the Community Service Office because it has allowed me to traverse the ‘WashU Bubble’ and work with great people who make up this city.”
