You are invited to attend the ACLU of Ohio’s statewide conference “Your Voice, Your Power!” on July 28, 2012.
The conference will feature over a dozen workshops on a wide variety of civil liberties topics.
These sessions will be of special interest to archivists, librarians and historians:
- Four Dead in Ohio, featuring Kent State University archivist Stephen Paschen and civil rights and criminal defense attorney Niki Schwartz.
- Digital Library, with panelists Ohio Library Council past president Molly Carver and investigative journalist Brian Bardwell.
- Don’t Talk About It, Be About It: How Do We Fight for Equality? led by Mary Beth Tinker, who was suspended in 1965 as a 13-year-old for wearing a black armband to protest the Vietnam War. Her battle for students’ free speech rights led to a victory in the U.S. Supreme Court.
- All Up in Your Business: Employment Matters, which will explore whether employers can impose personal behavior restrictions in the workplace.
- Executive director of the Center for Media and Democracy, Lisa Graves, will speak during lunch.
I hope you will plan to join us for the conference and attend these workshops. You can find information and register at http://www.acluohio.org/conference2012.
