How can I get acrylic paint out of my clothes?

Quickly! It will be easier if the paint is still wet, so work on it right away. Dab the paint with a towel, to remove any excess. Rub some soap into the fabric/paint. Use your fingernail to scrub it into the fabric, and wash out with water. If you don’t have access to clean water, rub soap into the paint, and leave it there. Later when you have water, the dried acrylic paint will be suspended in the soap and you will be able to wash it out.
