The American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California has been acting as guardian of justice, fairness, equality, and freedom for decades. It’s been at the heart of many major struggles for civil liberties, contests both intense and controversial. It focuses on our basic Constitutional Rights – to free speech, to privacy, to due process – and seeks to make them realities in practice, not just on paper. Mr. Soltani offers OLLI an inside look at how the ACLU’s Northern California wing chooses its battles and goes about organizing to fight them. In an era when our basic rights sometimes seem in outright peril or subject to troubling interpretations, he can offer us valuable insights. Don’t miss this chance to share in them.
