Soft launch of historical website — Calendar of civil liberties
There is a new website: Today in Civil Liberties History, which has five or six events for each day. Each event includes learning materials: books, reports, web sites, Youtube videos, and more. It covers the full range of civil liberties issues: First Amendment, racial justice, reproductive rights, lesbian and gay rights, national security, and more.
The official public launch will be on Constitution Day, Wednesday September 17th, but you can view in now.
