Watch: ACLU Emergency Town Hall -- Our Fight for Abortion Access

Today's video webcast is available for streaming:

Note for hearing-impaired DUers: ASL interpreters were present for the entire program.

On June 24, the Supreme Court issued a shameful ruling explicitly overturning Roe v. Wade — turning its back on 50 years of precedent. The consequences of revoking the federal constitutional right to abortion will be immediate and far-reaching.

During this emergency town hall, an expert panel of ACLU attorneys and advocates discuss the devastating impact this decision will have on reproductive rights across the country, the ACLU’s short- and long-term response, and the path forward. The speakers include Brigitte Amiri, ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project Deputy Director; David Cole, ACLU Legal Director; J.J. Straight, ACLU Liberty Division Deputy Director; and Rebecca Lowell Edwards, ACLU Chief Communications Officer.

Georgia Tech hotel hosting conference by election deniers

Georgia Tech hotel hosting conference by election deniers
By Chris Joyner, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, June 29, 2022

A meeting of activists spreading debunked theories about the 2020 presidential election, vaccine misinformation, and conspiracy theories about supposed global “shadow government” will take place this holiday weekend in an unexpected place — the campus of the Georgia Institute of Technology.

The Nations in Action “Solutions and Strategy Summit” is scheduled to be held in the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center, a midtown hotel run by the Georgia Tech Foundation, the university’s non-profit fundraising arm. Nations in Action, an organization founded by former Georgia lobbyist and Republican activist Maria Zack, bills the conference as an opportunity “to learn strategies and tactics to win America back.”

“Gain the latest intel on election fraud, the shadow government, globalist control, and how COVID has been weaponized against us from the whistleblowers and insiders who know,” the group said on its website. “Receive training and brainstorm on strategies to restore government and stop bad actors (politicians, parties, media, and government officials).”

The speakers are fringe figures, some of whom have espoused antisemitic conspiracies about Jewish control of government and the media or debunked claims about alleged health impacts of 5G cellular technology, among other beliefs.

This Maria Zack loon, by the way, was the founder of a PAC supporting Ted Cruz in 2016 but has since become a full-bore MAGAt and one of the most ardent pushers of the bizarro Italy-hacked-the-voting-machines conspiracy theory. More on that from Wonkette:

Help push DU's support for Sen. Warnock over the $500 mark!

Hey, fellow DUers!
As you no doubt already know, this year's U.S. Senate race for Raphael Warnock's seat in Georgia is at the top of the GOP's hit list. This is projected to be the most expensive Senate race ever, with millions in Republican dark money already blanketing the state with ads supporting Herschel Walker and attacking Sen. Warnock. So the Warnock campaign needs all the help we can give them.

Please consider joining me to make a donation today. Raphael Warnock is a great senator and key to our goal of maintaining a Dem majority in November.

As I write this, we've raised $465.22 for Sen. Warnock. Let's send some more DU love his way to get this total over $500 today!
