Dissent is Patriotic

from: https://www.facebook.com/aclu.norcal/

Join the ACLU of Northern California to reflect on the past year and to prepare to continue our role in the resistance on Bill of Rights Day 2017 – Sunday, December 3, 2017 from 1-4:30 p.m. in Oakland, CA. Tickets are $25; they sold out last year and will not be sold at the door.

This year, they’re honoring Karen Korematsu for educating Americans about the legacy of her father Fred Korematsu and speaking out against the Muslim Ban; Jim McQuillen for his commitment to advancing equal access and educational opportunity for Native students throughout California; and Natalie Hewitt Wormeli for her work advancing state and local civil liberties initiatives and mentoring the next generation of fierce women advocates.

How long has it been since you actually read the U. S. Bill of Rights? Do you know the history of interpretation about the right to bear arms and separation of church and state?
