Just in time to give away the Fifth Annual Patriot Award this evening at the Red Lion Hotel in Eureka, the Redwood ACLU shares highlights of the last Annual Meeting and Patriot Award Gala on October 27, 2007.
Accepting the Fourth Annual Patriot Award was Clerk-Recorder Carolyn Crnich and the Election Advisory Committee of Humboldt County. Crnich gave remarks on the innovative development of the Humboldt Transparency Project, flanked by EAC members Greg Allen, Kevin Collins, Tom Pinto, Jamie Orr and Mark Konkler. Allen and Konkler also gave brief remarks where they credited Crnich for her brave leadership on election reform issues.
Redwood ACLU chair Christina Allbright gave introductory remarks on the (then) recent accomplishments of local civil rights leaders, including progress on police review and expanding civil liberties to virtual environments such as Second Life.
