Our annual event is a moment to not only celebrate our legacy, but recognize leaders who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to the protection of civil rights & civil liberties. This year we are excited to welcome Nusrat Choudhury, Deputy Director of the ACLU’s National Racial Justice Program, as our featured speaker. Her essential work challenges biased policing practices and seeks to end debtors’ prisons. We are also proud to honor Justice Louis Scolnik, a founder of the ACLU of Maine and former Maine Supreme Court Justice. Justice Scolnik’s foundational work has not only guided our mission, but set the stage for future generations to expand civil rights and civil liberties for all Mainers.
Please note: if you have attended our annual event in the past, you may notice we are doing things a bit differently this year. In order to host an event that is inclusive and accessible for all our members, this year we are moving venues to Hannaford Hall at the University of Southern Maine. Instead of a sit-down dinner, we will host a reception with hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar, followed by an entertaining and engaging stage program. And we'll wrap up in time for you to get dinner after.
