Aasif Mandvi

The ACLU of Illinois proud to present Aasif Mandvi as our keynote speaker for ACLU:ENGAGE.

His work frequently serves to highlight the absurdities in our political system, and shining a light on injustices and intolerance perpetrated by the powerful against powerless individuals and groups.

Aasif often discusses civil liberties issues in his work on the daily show, including ACLU cases. In the clip below, he covers an ACLU of Florida client, Luis Lebron, in a challenge against Florida’s law mandating drug-testing for welfare recipients:
