Week 4 - Why Is The ACLU Important?
There is a lot of press lately about politics. It doesn't matter who resonates with us politically. What is important that no one fiddles with our fundamental American rights. They cover everything from freedom of speech to women's rights. To say the Constitution is important is an understatement. The constitution is the foundation of the United States of America. Without these rights, we lose the freedoms that weave the American identity into all of us. If we begin to chip at away at these rights, we are starting to chip away at the solid foundation that makes this country great.
We have come to a moment when some of us may find these values challenged. Who can help?
Until today, I didn't know much about the ACLU. However, they protect fundamental American rights. They fight for the people who find their rights challenged. They seem like a precious and a valuable organization. I'm going to research them further. How about you?
Until tomorrow Defenders of Freedom.
