ACLU of Northern California

Accountability for TortureDear Friend,

Even in the age of Obama, the lingering attacks on civil liberties by the Bush administration are still being revealed. With newly released evidence of state-sanctioned torture practices by the CIA, warrantless wiretaps of innocent Americans, and unconstitutional expansions of executive power, we can't sweep the abuses of the last eight years under the rug. Accountability for torture is a legal, political, and moral imperative. And the ACLU is committed to restoring the rule of law.

Join us for a briefing on Transparency & Accountability in San Francisco - or by telephone - on Wed., July 15

On July 15, we will hear from ACLU-NC staff attorney Ann Brick, counsel in our case that alleged that Jeppesen Dataplan, Inc. knowingly provided flight services that enabled the CIA to transport people to secret overseas locations where they were tortured. Brick has also been at the center of the ACLU's lawsuit against telecommunications giants AT&T and Verizon to stop them from providing the government with the personal phone records of millions of Californians. Also joining us by phone will be Michelle Richardson, legislative counsel for the ACLU Washington Legislative Office, who will give us the latest update on what the ACLU is doing to ensure our civil liberties are protected at the federal level.
