ACLU of Delaware to Host Meetings in Sussex County

We’re the people daring to create a more perfect union, and it’s time for you to join the fight. ACLU-DE invites you to join us at our year-long meeting series in Sussex County.

For more than half a century, ACLU-DE has worked in courts, legislatures, and communities to protect the constitutional rights of all Delawareans. Our success is a direct result of your support. These meetings will help us build the skills and connections we need to be even more successful in the future

The Sussex Series will focus on different topics and will include information sessions, trainings, guest speakers, important updates, and invaluable networking opportunities.

The meetings will be held bi-monthly at various locations in Sussex County, and are free and open to the public (RSVP may be requested for some meeting locations). More information on each meeting can be found below. Up-to-date information will be added as each meeting is scheduled.

Sussex Series #3: Racial Justice in Delaware: Past, Present & Future

Thursday, April 26th, 2018
5:30 – 6:00 pm: Networking and Light Refreshments
6:00 – 7:30 pm: Program
Georgetown Public Library
123 W. Pine St,. Georgetown, DE 19947

On April 26, 2018, the Equal Justice Initiative will be opening a national memorial in Montgomery, Alabama. The National Memorial for Peace and Justice will become the nation’s first comprehensive memorial dedicated to over 4400 victims of racial terror lynchings.

The memorial is a stark reminder of the past, the present and the future of our nation’s relationship to injustice, and for that reason, we’ve chosen to focus our third meeting in the Sussex Series on the past, present and future of racial justice in Delaware. We’ll talk about how our history as a slave state has transformed into modern slavery through mass incarceration and a broken criminal justice system and what organizations and Delawareans are doing to make things better across the state.

Please join us at this event! RSVP here.

This event is organized by ACLU-DE, Progressive Democrats of Sussex County, NAACP Delaware State Conference and the Southern Delaware Alliance for Racial Justice.
