“The fight for civil liberties in redwood country faced new challenges this year, not to mention the return of mass police surveillance of public areas as Arcata is now considering,” said Redwood ACLU vice chair Greg Allen. “I’m looking forward to another strong turnout of the local membership, not only so we can celebrate our accomplishments but also set new goals to bring Humboldt and surrounding counties into the kind of legal and social environment of freedom that we should expect by now, seven years into the 21st Century.”
The local ACLU is also proud to announce the distribution of the first issue of its brand-new newsletter, the Redwood Libertine, which is set to come out quarterly. To find out more, call the Redwood ACLU hotline at 215-5385, or visit the Redwood Civil Liberties Blog at redwoodaclu.blogspot.com.
