Yeah, ACLU is one of the best. www.aclu.org . I'm pretty involved politically and if you'd like to PM me or email me (cobalt@columbusinteractive.com) and tell me more specifically what you're wanting to get into, I'd be happy to recommend some organizations for you to look at.

Ditto the ACLU.

Also, in your own neck of the woods, there's the First Amendment Project [/URL] and the California First Amendment Coalition [URL=http://www.cfac.org] (http://www.thefirstamendment.org) However, both are more journalists' coalitions, dealing with both free speech and freedom of the press.
