Rally ‘Round the Constitution Sept. 17!

Let me guess – you’ve been sitting around for days now, wondering how you could properly commemorate the 219th anniversary of the signing of the US Constitution in Independence Hall in Philadelphia on Sept. 17, 1787. (It’s like I’m a mind reader, isn’t it?) Well, fret no more, my fellow civil libertarians.

The ACLU is sponsoring a rally on Sunday, Sept. 17, at 2:30 p.m. on Independence Mall in Philadelphia to defend the Constitution, which has taken its fair share of knocks over the past few years. Our main speaker will be John Dean, former White House counsel and author of Worse Than Watergate: The Secret Presidency of George W. Bush. Over the next few weeks we’ll be adding more speakers, and possibly a musician or two.

We’re also looking for other groups to co-sponsor (we’ve already signed up the Pittsburgh Bill of Rights Defense Committee, Public Interest Law Center of Philadelphia, and the ACLU of Delaware). If you’re involved with an organization that might be interested, send us an email at info@aclupa.org.

Hope you’ll join us. We’re working on arranging busses from around the state to bring people to the event. If you live outside the Philadelphia area and would like be kept posted on the availability of busses from your area, please let us know at info@aclupa.org.

Bring friends, signs, and your outrage!
