ACLU Progressive Movie Night

Join the ACLU of Colorado — and members of the Student Chapter of the ACLU at the University of Denver — for a FREE  Progressive Movie Night, featuring the film, "William Kunstler:  Disturbing the Universe," the film about the self-professed "wild-haired, radical civil rights attorney" whose defense, along with the ACLU, of the Mississippi Freedom Riders helped earn him the title "most hated lawyer in America."

The film event, which includes snacks, will be in Room 165 of the Sturm College of Law, 2235 E. Evans Ave., Denver 80210.
