Because ACLU has no central hiring authority, you won't find a massive list of every fellow in the history of ever. Some chapters post their attorney bios, some don't. Northern California, for example, does not post, but SoCal ACLU posts right here. As you'll notice, every recently (within the last 5 years) hired attorney on that list graduated from a T14 school, (mostly HYS + N) with one notable exception -- and that guy appears to have preexisting ties to ACLU/SC.
That said, you'll probably find in some less-prestigious offices (i.e, Colorado and Pennsylvania) the resumes are more slanted towards hustle and dedication rather than pedigree. Keep in mind that these offices virtually never hire, and when they do, they hire former non-legal folks from within. Don't go to Temple assuming that just because two other staff attorneys are from Temple that you'll be fine.
