Redwood ACLU Annual Meeting

On Monday, April 1, 2013 (no fooling!) please join your fellow lovers of liberty for the Annual Meeting of the Redwood Chapter, American Civil Liberties Union.

 The Redwood ACLU is delighted to present the Patriot Award to Richard
Salzman, in recognition for his efforts to expose the injustice of Arcata's
Panhandling Ordinance. Thanks to his civil disobedience and the
subsequent lawsuit, the ordinance was successfully nullified. Please read about Richard's involvement with this and other local social issues at richardslist  (http://www.richardslist.org/)

 The event starts at 6 p.m. with a potluck, followed by the election of our
2013 Redwood ACLU Board, our keynote speech, and the awarding of the
2012 Redwood ACLU Patriot Award.
