Greenbelt Civil Liberties Teach-In
Our panelists and audience members at September 23rd Teach-In on the USA PATRIOT Act offered a wealth of information and viewpoints. We appreciate their time and enthusiasm.

Another central news source on the civil liberties resolutions campaign nationwide is the national Bill of Rights Defense Committee at http://www.bordc.org/. Here you can find the list of the over 170 local and state goverments which have also adopted similar resolutions.
