Today is Constitution Day. On September 17, 1787, our Founding Fathers ratified our Constitution, which provided for life, liberty, freedom, and prosperity. When you donate to BORDC, you are supporting those Constitutional rights we hold so dear.
Want to celebrate Constitution Day this year? Here are three ways how:
1. Urge the passage of the End Racial Profiling Act.
This past month has brought this nation a lot of turmoil. Shootings of young people of color have become commonplace. Rather than investigate these tragedies, local police agencies have further violated the rights of communities that organize peacefully to raise their concerns, compounding abuses of the Fourth, Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments with First Amendment violations.
2. Stop the NSA from spying on us.
It seems as though we are repeating the early days of the Bush administration. Fear mongering is rampant. The NSA continues to spy on you, and your family, invading your privacy and undermining your freedom of thought. The CIA is undermining human rights principles that have stood since we established them 50 years ago. More than ever, our country needs grassroots activism. More than ever, we need support from people like you. You can also help out by signing this letter to Congress to express your concerns.
3. Start a local campaign.
BORDC is happy to work with you to help you start your own local campaign. Are you concerned about the state of your constitutional rights? Do you want to recruit friends & neighbors to join in the fight? You can get started by using our Grassroots Toolkit to start a campaign of your own. And also remember that donating to BORDC helps us help others.
