Our 2013 Annual Membership Meeting was a great success!
On Saturday, Feburary 9th, over 100 ACLU of Colorado members came together for our annual membership meeting. Louise Melling, Deputy Legal Director of the ACLU and the Director of its Center for Liberty, spoke about increasing attempts to use religion to discriminate and how best to respond to such attempts, eliciting several thought-provoking questions from attendees.
In addition, at the meeting we recognized the valuable work of two outsanding Colorado civil liberties leaders: 2012 Volunteer of the Year Award recipient John P. Scott and 2012 Civil Rights in Action Youth Award recipient AJUA (Asociación de Jóvenes Unidos en Acción: Association of Youth United in Action).
Thanks to all who were able to join us, and a big thank you to our event sponsors Heizer Paul Grueskin LLP!
