ACLU of Ohio Statewide Conference Invite

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

If you have questions or need additional details, please feel free to call or email me at 216/472-2218 or


Ann Rowlett, MLIS
Deputy Director
