Come to the U of A ACLU’s first meeting! Wednesday, September 12, 12:15 - 1:15 p.m. in CC-109. We will be joined by Professor Brent White, who will speak with us briefly as we feast on brownies and cookies. The American system of government is founded on two counterbalancing principles:  that the majority of the people governs, through democratically elected representatives; and that the power even of a democratic majority must be limited, to ensure individual rights. The mission of the ACLU is to preserve all of these protections and guarantees:

We work also to extend rights to segments of our population that have traditionally been denied their rights, including Native Americans and other people of color; lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgender people; women; mental-health patients; prisoners; people with disabilities; and the poor. Questions? Contact: Kevin Maniak at kmaniak@email.arizona.edu, or Robin Quarrier at roq@email.arizona.edu.

We will meet at the Corleone Student Center at 8:15 a.m. and then head to the food bank, where we will work from 9:00 a.m. to Noon.
