“Am I shut out of working for the ACLU if I don’t get into HLS and only get into CLS?” - no, of course not.
“If I have acceptances to both HLS and CLS, which one is better for working for the ACLU?” - depends on a lot of personal factors

I went to a t20 and gunned for employment law since 1L summer, so I'm guessing it'd be doable from any other top ranked school if you show interest in an area that the ACLU is known to advocate for and work for a firm that is co-counsel or has some ties with the ACLU.
Main point is it's doable, but HYS may give you a more direct and easy route in, rather than having to research firms that work with the ACLU or having other contacts to network with that can help you out. Fwiw, most of the people that I've personally seen and worked with from ACLU NY office went to Harvard.
