The International Student Activism Alliance (ISAA-ACLU) is about students taking charge of their lives, using their power and making a difference. It is a highly effective national and international student network which works on a wide range of student issues. This allows for student input and representation when laws are being passed that affect them.

The ISAA-ACLU chooses the issues it fights for or against. The issues are not partisan, they are student, and include:

  • A fight for more federal college loans
  • A fight against early school start times
  • A fight for our guaranteed due process in schools
  • A fight against policies that only allow certain students to compete on school sports teams
  • Or a fight against child labor abuse in other countries
