Yes, you can withdraw your contributions to the Roth IRA at any time, for any reason, without tax nor penalty.

There may be expenses related to liquidating whatever the Roth IRA money is invested in (e.g., trading costs to sell stocks that were purchased within the Roth IRA).

Now the earnings are a different story--there you have to play by the rules to avoid tax and penalty.
